in Water Towers

In the world of water storage, the icon is the riveted tank. Once the pride of the community, these towers were proof that towns had outgrown their village or hamlet status. Whenever the subject of water towers comes up, it's the riveted tank that appears in the mind's eye. References to the tin woodsman in the Wizard of Oz are frequent. State-of-the-art when installed, these towers were built better than they had to be and are still holding their water in tens of thousands of towns. Ironically,

The multi-column water tank is most economical design and according to company propaganda, it's also the most efficient. Most of these have access ladders on the tower and a catwalk and handrail around the tank. These are usually the towers a community installs after they have outgrown their riveted tank. These were postwar favorites with subdivisions and suburbs all across the country.
