  • Investigate the Water Treatment Plant
  • Drain the flooded Water Treatment Plant

Investigate the Water Treatment Plant

Supervisor White at Graygarden assigns you the task of investigating the water problem at the greenhouse. Travel to Weston Water Treatment Plant, situated south of your present location. Beware of the heavily guarded super mutants. Head towards the main building, locate the elevator, and use it. Your next objective is to locate the pumping station. Move downstairs, and turn left. The objective will update once you enter the room.

Pump the water out of the plant

You must activate four pumps to drain the water from the building. Each pump will lower the water level and reveal new passages and corridors. Every time you activate a switch, a group of mirelurks will emerge. You can find the first switch in the room you are currently in [1]. The second pump is situated on the opposite side of the building [2]. Follow the ramps to reach it. After activating the second switch, the water level will decrease enough for you to view the third switch [3]. Move towards it and activate it. The fourth switch [4] is located directly in front of you. To get to it, jump into the water and pass through the partially flooded door. The console is located on the first floor.

Restart the main pump

You can access the console that controls the flow of water by draining all the water from the room. Your only task is to activate the switch [5].

Return to Supervisor White

Your final objective is to return to Supervisor White. To do so, use the elevator located in the room next to the switch. Travel to Graygarden and speak with Supervisor White. As a reward, you will receive vegetables, bottlecaps, and access to a workshop. You will also be able to convert the greenhouse into a settlement.

Rewards for completing the quest: bottlecaps, vegetables, access to a workshop.
