Water Storage


Some water storage reservoirs stand out as local landmarks, while others go almost completely unnoticed underground. In addition to their varied locations, the construction of these reservoirs can include such varied materials as reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete or steel. Greeley and Hansen's first water storage reservoir was a relatively small 500,000 gallon elevated steel water tank constructed for the city of Highland Park, Illinois, in 1928. Used continually since then, the brick-enclosed tank and supporting structure is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is still something special on the landscape.
