The Wasserturm Oberhausen is a water tower at Mülheimer Straße 1 in Oberhausen, Germany. It was built in 1897 by the Gutehoffnungshütte (GHH) with bricks, as the GHH needed a replacement for its demolished water towers on the Obere Marktstraße. The water was pumped over three pressure strings into the approximately 50 m high tower and stored there in an elevated tank of the type Intze with a capacity of 1000 m³. In 1947, the damage of the Second World War was repaired. In 1965, the water tower operated by Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft (HOAG) and Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft (RWW) was taken out of service and has been a listed building since 13 March 1985. Today it is used by a surveying office as a living or working space.
