Purpose and function of elevated water storage tanks.

The job of finding enough water, making it safe to use, and then reliably distributing it to the system customers with almost no downtime is a monumental task that requires a lot of infrastructure.

I’m Grady Hillhouse and this is Public Works, my video series on infrastructure and the humanmade world around us.
