I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but Johnny Cash is making a comeback! (Again)

:)

The State of Arkansas is also going to place a statue of Johnny Cash (along with a statue of Daisy Bates) on the grounds of the US Capitol later this year.

Don't forget Living Sacrifice and Evanescence...
LS is one of my ALL TIME favorite bands. I was able to see them back in Portland several years ago after Rocky came back from Evenesance (of whom I'm not a fan). It was a great show, and my brother an I got to hang out with the band for a bit after the show. Really cool guys, and great musicians.

A steel guitar engagment.
In a town like that you'd figure a resident or two would climb up there and put a cork in it: or some temporary fix for 20 bucks or so instead of letting it empty to the hole level.

I was thinking the same thing. My concern would be safety. It’s got to be slippery climbing up there. Especially with any materials or equipment. Plus I wonder how much water pressure there is pushing outward?

The pressure thing also crossed my mind especially at the time the hole was put there. That's a bunch of water all trying to escape through 1 small orifice.
EDIT: I never lived in a town that depended on a tank like that for water. Do they catch rain or if need be, buy water and have it pumped into the tank?

I grew up in a small town that had two water towers. We never used them that I know of. I just figured they were there so after getting a snoot full you could look up and remember what town you’re in.

The water is pumped into the tank from the water treatment plant. From there it is gravity-fed to the water's final consumers.

It is not open to rainwater.

they use it to create water pressure.
