The dewatering pumps, an essential instrument for the mechanized reclamation activity, represent today wonderful examples of industrial archeology; among them, the dewatering pump system of Ca' Vendramin is without a doubt the most significant one in the Delta area.
The works, begun in 1900, ended in 1903 and were tested in 1905.
The territory of Ariano island was divided into two basins: upper and lower. The dewatering pump system of Ca' Vendramin had to raise the waters of the whole upper basin and put them into Veneto channel (effluent) which channeled them near the mouth of Po di Goro and then, with a system of "Porte Vinciane" (Leonardo da Vinci's locks), into the sea.

Opening times: Every day, from March to October: 9.30 a.m. - 12.30 p.m. and 3.00 p.m. - 6.00 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
