Coolidge Water Tower lit for the first time in 90 years.
The Coolidge Water Tower has its roots in the community since 1929, before Coolidge became an incorporated city. One of the unique features of the tower is its service to the community. It’s one of only a few working water towers in Arizona and serves about 4,800 Coolidge residents to this day. Arizona Water could have discontinued use of the tower but instead chose to keep it in operation.
With the help of the City and various donors throughout the community, the water
tower was lighted for the first time in its history. The City visited a similarly built water tower in Gilbert, Arizona and met with town officials. Coolidge staff researched what it would take to place and maintain a similar lighting system so the water tower could be seen for miles.
On December 13, 2019, the Coolidge Water Tower was lit for the first time in its 90 year history! The Coolidge Water Tower is one of the best know symbols of Coolidge and lighting it for the first time showed the community that Coolidge is united to help make the City a better place for everyone!
