The tank is still there at this time,however it is now a 'greenish" color.

Labeled "Caledonia", can't miss it when driving East on Rte 5/20 into the village. Rounded finial on top of the tank represents this benchmark.

The finial atop the tank is the actual benchmark.

Found this one on the way to the Silver Lake Drive in where we logged a Virtual cache. Two for one! Yeah! Tank is still there and is painted a bluish color.
