Water Tower 7 is one of 11 water stations that help deliver water to more than 200,000 customers in the city of Vancouver system. This tower, undergoing a repainting this year, is near the intersection of Northeast 112th Avenue and Northeast 18th Street. Vancouver draws its drinking water from underground aquifers, meaning the city is unaffected by contamination in Portland's system.
