Driving into Wetaskiwin from any direction, the 10-story water tower is one of the first visible signs of the city. Built in 1909 and located at 4941-55A Street, Wetaskiwin’s water tower is one of the oldest municipal water towers in Alberta. In 2004 Council decided to refurbish the structure, which had fallen into a state of disrepair. Work to refurbish the tower began in 2005, and by 2006 the water tower was completely restored. Majestic by day and illuminated by night, the tower serves as a beacon to all who enter the City.
