Sacramento overhead water tank
‘[This] is one of…the largest reinforced concrete elevated water tanks ever constructed. Each one has a capacity of 3,000,000 gallons and both are in the city of Sacramento.’ (total cost: $703,554)
The tank pictured here is located at the location above, and the other is West of 33rd st between J and L streets. In a postmodern turn, the structure now hosts many cellular antennas.
