The Oberhausen water tower is a water tower on Mülheimer Strasse 1 in Oberhausen. It was built in 1897 by the Gutehoffnungshütte (GHH) with bricks because the GHH needed a replacement for its torn water towers on the upper market road. The water was pumped over three pressure strands in the approx. 50 m high tower and there was saved in a high tank of the Intze design with 1000 m³ capacity. In 1947 the damage to the Second World War was remedied. In 1965, the water tower operated by the Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft (HOAG) or Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft (RWW) was taken out and has been a listed building since March 13, 1985. Today it is used by a surveying office as a living or work space.
