Bobber Water Tower

Look up - you can't miss it!

The Garrison Community is proud of Lake Sakakawea and the opportunities it gives our community. When our community water tower was being built, a group of citizens suggested that the new water tower be painted like a bobber featuring the "Get Hooked on Garrison" logo. Quickly these business leaders and our City Council came up with a plan to make this Garrison's newest attractions to replace our previous "Hot & Cold" Water Towers!
