Nearly every city has a water tank where potable water for its residents and businesses is stored. You’re bound to see at least one while driving through town. However, many of these water tanks blend into the background because of their plain styles. Most are painted blue, gray or white and are usually outfitted with the city name and logo.
Not all tanks fit this bill, though. There are quite a few storage tanks across the nation that are designed to catch the eye of passersby.
