Easy to spot while caching in the area

Stopped in town for a couple caches while traveling through to Geowoodstock. Easy spots to see while driving by.

Geocaching with mbomber33 and we came across this benchmark.

Was geocaching in the area. And saw this as we drove past.
Quickly checked to see if it was a benchmark
And now I'm logging it

After the CITO

Saw this from a distance while geocaching w TeamSnooth and Phil & Verla from OZ.

The description places the tank on the west side of Roosevelt Dr. between Castelon Ct. and Burlwood Dr. It has been gone for decades as has the similar tank that was just south of Arkansas Ln. at about the 3100 block. There is a newer, taller tank at this address now.

The data sheet describes a water tank about 100 feet high. However no such tank is visible from Bowen Road, 1/4 mile to the east. This leads me to believe that the tank has been removed.
