Water tanks dismantled. What a shame.

Never knew this was a benchmark until we met Harry Dolphin and Andy Bear here yesterday. They were taking a few pictures of them. We have a Geocache in this area. I hope they stay here for a long time!

Found it.®

Easy find in a beautiful area. I'd been here before, so I knew where they were. We met Team Catahoula at the base of the west tank. A pleasure meeting you!

Found this while doing the 'Live Rust' cache in this park. Hasn't been logged in a while but the demolition of the old buildings is essentially done and the towers seem to have survived.

Recovered by Bluehook on 11/15/2002. With the upcoming development plan for this area, this benchmark will probably not survive much longer.
