2.4.2 Water Towers Example 3

Location of Example: Not Recorded
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Elevated Water Tanks appear as circular elevated features.
  • Elevated Water Tanks can vary in height and a shadow signature can be difficult to detect dependant on imagery and elevation height.
  • Elevated Water Tanks may be adjacent to other larger grounded water tanks on farm land or on higher ground to take into account the additional advantage of increased gravity
Regional Considerations:
  • Elevated Water Tanks appear on farms as a method of regulating water flow accross a property or near small regional centres.
