Then it played the role of the water tower and supplied water to a building 30 m heigh. In December 1944, during the Second World War, the Germans destroyed the tower when retreating from the city. After the war it was decided to rebuild a unique design. The tower was fully rebuilt only in 1949. In 1975 the city started using Dnipro river water and stopped using the tower. Today it is a unique architectural building, as only a little over 20 such towers remained out of 200, built Vladimir Shukhov.
