Guadalupe's historic water tower taken down

The iconic water tank that has towered over Guadalupe since 1928 was being taken down on Sunday.

The tower has become a landmark in the city known as the "Gateway to the Dunes." A new 149-foot-tall water tank was built to replace the aging tower which was damaged in the 2003 San Simeon Earthquake and declared structurally unsafe. Although the old tank is shorter by 39 feet, it has the same capacity, which is 100,000 gallons as its replacement.
