Water towers as a community landmark
November 16, 2009

The Grand Island Independent reports that a community group in Elba, Nebraska, is trying to buy an obsolete water tower from the city to keep it in place as a community landmark. They are trying to buy the existing 35,000-gallon tower for $5000, which the city wants to get off its balance sheet since the tower will require regular repainting and other maintenance. As we've noted previously in connection with this story, water towers are often viewed as landmarks and marketing tools in addition to serving their role as essential tools within a muncipal water system.

Water towers (or elevated water storage tanks) require the help of pumps to get water from at and below ground level up to the top of the tank, and many are fed with the help of our pressure-booster stations. Please feel free to contact us with your questions.
