Why do we store water in water towers?
  • A large amount of water may be needed to fight a large fire.
  • When you turn on your faucet water flows out because the water in the pipes is under pressure and is pushed out. The weight of the water in the water tower provides your house with water pressure. The higher the water is above you, the more pressure you have.
  • Excess storage means the well can pump water more efficiently. The wells can pump water all night into storage as we sleep for the large demand when everyone wakes up and gets ready to start their day. Water is also saved over weekdays for weekends when majority of people use water to clean and do laundry. Ramsey's three storage tanks can hold 4 million gallons of water.
