The Oberhausen Water Tower is a water tower located 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 into the approx. 50 m high tower via three pressure strings and stored there in an Intze elevated tank with a capacity of 1000 m³. In 1947, the damage caused by the Second World War was repaired. In 1965, the water tower, which was operated by Hüttenwerke Oberhausen Aktiengesellschaft (HOAG) and Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft (RWW), was taken out of operation and has been a listed building since 13 March 1985. Today it is used by a surveying office as a living or working space.
