Water Walk, 4
At last, it doesn't matter that I don't know because Bellis didn't know either, and apparently neither doesPasadena Water & Power.
To give you an idea of size, I'm 5'4" and I'm about as tall as the top of the graffiti on the west side of the tower. You can see a slim window at the top on the south side. It wouldn't be wide enough for an adult to fit through, though maybe a small child could do it.
On the east side of the tower, at the top, there's a sign:
Many thanks to Bellis for a fantastic tour, and to Pasadena Water and Power for the water, and the power.
Update: Here's a nice post on the Zanja walk Bellis took before she took me.
Tomorrow, Zen Monday!
Tuesday, news updates!
After that, I have no idea!
UPDATE: I spoke with Brad Bowman of Pasadena Water and Power, who told me this is a "surge tower." There's a pretty good explanation here. This tower is the "point of release."
