Minnetonka Water Tower

Water tower
I was surprised to discover that one of water towers main functions is to provide pressure rather than just water. Municipal water pumps can then provide water by average demand, rather than having to size their municipal water pumps for "peak" demand.
The water tower also provides a reserve flow of water for storage or as a supply as needed.

This tower has recently been repainted. Note that "minnetonka" is presented in all lower case letters. Somewhere there was a meeting... The Handbook of Good English states: "The names of countries, states, provinces, counties, cities, towns, are obviously capitalized"
But then, this is after all, a minnetonka logo.
