Smiley Face Water Tower

The "Smiley Face Water Tower" in Smithville is owned by AQUA Water Corp., a regional water supply company. There are a couple dozen of the smiley-faced towers in the area.

Along with water fluoridation, those smiley faces suppress a community's natural urge to riot and set fire to things.

I spotted a Smiley water tower in Smithville, Texas. It's just a few miles northeast of the city, on FM-153. It's right at the fork between FM-153 and FM-2104.

We like this Smiley's circa 1975 LED-style design.
