STEP 4 - The Pipes

Water Flows to Homes and Businesses through Pipes


We use 3,000 miles of pipes to bring water to all the people and places in Albuquerque.  That is enough pipe to go from Miami to Seattle.

We have over 2,000 miles of pipes that collect sewer water. That is enough pipe to go from Albuquerque to New York City.
Wow! That’s a lot of pipe!




These are the pipes,

attached to the faucet,

that filled the cup,

that held the water

that Jack drank.
