The leading trade paper in Sweden VA-tidskriften Cirkulation has a series about water towers under the headline Ebers vattentorn (Eber's Water Towers). Here are the same pictures and texts (translated) of interesting water towers in the world except Scania and Sweden, as in the journal.

Eber's Water Towers 2019

by Eber Ohlsson

Cirkulation 1/2019

A free translation to English:

When you open your water tap, you want that the water shall have a good pressure, not too high and not too low. This may require a more complex water pipeline network, if it is in topography with high altitude variation. One common way to solve this is to create several pressure zones, and if there is a need for water towers, build several towers.

It does not prevent these water towers from being found in the same place, even if, like the suburb of the French city of Arras, Saint-Laurent-Blangy, they build the water tower on top of each other. More normal is to create reservoirs at different heights in the same water tower.
