In the late 1800s, New York City and Chicago required that all buildings higher than six stories be equipped with a rooftop water tower. The water tower was required on high rise buildings to avoid a repeat of the devastation that marked the great Chicago fire of October, 1871. The water pressure from a municipal system wasn’t adequate to provide a large enough volume of water to supply the fire department hoses to reach the upper levels in a multi story building. The water tower arose in tandem with the “skyscraper”
