No Dignity in Death for this Water Tower

2008: New construction towers over the old.

2008: The old tower is dwarfed by its still-unfinished replacement.

Cut down like a tree! For those of us who dysfunctionally enjoy watching big things fall, here’s the last misty moments of the 75,000-gallon Huntertown, Indiana water tower. A Michigan contractor charged the city a bargain price of $7,500 for the hour-long job. (My new driveway cost more than that!)

A spiffy new half-million gallon tank had already taken its place, leaving her abandoned and unneeded without even a colorful mascot or civic-booster catchphrase for us to remember her by, shuffled away to the anonymous heap of un-stimulused aging infrastructure.
