What Happened to E-town Water?

As you may know from our articles, Elizabethtown Water built the World’s Tallest Water Sphere in 1964. There have been several paint schemes to the WTWS, but at one point the WTWS had a distinctive Elizabethtown Water company logo at the waist. This is shown in our header photo for this site. When the World’s Tallest Water Sphere was painted in its most recent light blue paint scheme, and its midriff was festooned with many cell phone antennas (early 1990s), the distinctive logo was lost to history.

Recently this author discovered that the Elizabethtown Water company is gone. Apparently, the company was purchased by the New Jersey American Water company, which was later purchased5 American Water company. Now Union New Jersey’s water needs are served by a national conglomerate.

Most likely this means that the distinctive “Dripping Pump” logo will never be seen again on the World’s Tallest Water Sphere. Tell us your thoughts. What did the pump mean to you? Do you miss the pump? Do you see any remaining dripping pump logos out on the web or on the highways?
