Whirlygig Water Tower. Whirlygig Water Tower

Artistic water tower has sunburst design on the metal (not painted on) with "whirly gigs" on the top. The whirly gigs actually generate electricity to power the tower and nearby streetlights. When the wind is blowing, the whirly gigs spin rapidly and enhance the view of the tower.
