Saint Elizabeth Water Tower

View all


Through the Elevated Water Storage Tower Project, DC Water will perform water system improvements for the proposed Anacostia 2nd high service area. The proposed new service area and water storage tower will serve the southern section of the existing Anacostia 1sthigh service area, improving water quality, system reliability, water pressure and ensuring adequate flows throughout the system.

The project area for the water storage tower is located near the Saint Elizabeths Hospital National Historic Landmark (NHL). The proposed site for the new tank is adjacent to the newly constructed hospital facility. The new tower will permit demolition of the existing tower  which was originally build in the 1930s and is today semi operational and unable to provide adequate water pressure to the hospital facility.
