Originally completed in 1920 by the Kansas City Water Department, the tower was one of the largest reinforced concrete standpipes of its time.  It provided on million gallons of fresh water to the surrounding neighborhood for 37 years before it was removed from service in 1957.  The tower was listed as an American Water Landmark by the American Water Works Association in 1975 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.  LightWorks is pleased to have provided a color changing lighting solution on such a monument.  The Kansas City Water Department is now capable of turning the tower blue in honor of our World Series Champion - Kansas City Royals.
