Pressure TankPressure tank; "Section H," part of a PWA waterworks project for Sheridan, Wyoming
A sizable ‘pressure tank,’ located on a hill east of downtown Sheridan, Wyoming, was constructed as part of a large waterworks project enabled by the New Deal’s Public Works Administration (PWA) in 1936-7. The tank, part of the project’s “Section H,” appears to only be accessible via private driveway [heading north] off of Kroe Lane. It is still in service.
