Description: The following description of a water tower comes from the website, Canadian Water Towers and Standpipes, http://www.eureka4you.com/watertowers/index.htm#HowTheyWork: An elevated water tower operates by gravity and must be at or near the highest point of the area it serves. When consumers use less water than the system is pumping, the excess water goes into the water tower through an intake pipe. When they use more water than is being pumped, the water starts flowing out of the tower through a different pipe. A valve in the water tower monitors the level of water in the tower to prevent an overflow. Water districts also store water in underground tanks and other types of facilities. This water tower is located on the outskirts of Malton. Original slide at Museums of Mississauga. Description as of June 2013.
