Demolition crew takes down old water tower in King City

KING CITY — The water tower on the north end of First Street in King City was taken down on June 23.

The tower, which was not currently in use, had been built by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in 1929 at the cost of $11,189. The tower was more than 100 feet tall and had a capacity of 100,000 gallons.

A video titled “Demolition of King City, CA Water Tower & Tank” on YouTube (also embedded below), shot by John Jernigan, shows a time elapse of the demolition.
