Wooden Water Towers

Water towers in New York are everywhere. Just look up and you’ll notice on top of New York’s buildings round, wooden structures that look like ancient relics from the past that were accidentally left there. As buildings grew taller than 6 stories, the main water infrastructure couldn’t handle the water pressure. Water towers were needed to move water safely to the 7th floor and above. Although they looks like remnants of the past, they are still very much in use today. The water is pumped up from the basement using electric pumps. The tanks hold about 10,000 gallons of water (37,854 litres), with a reserve for emergency use. It’s a simple concept that has little changed throughout the century.
