BONUS: Wootten Way Gardens in Markham, Ontario
The following is taken from the plaque found (and pictured) at the site:
"From 1971 until 2011, the Wootten Way elevated water tower stood here, at more than 41 metres tall and with a base of almost 10 metres in diameter. The mushroom-like shape is called a spheriod.
The tower was removed in 2011 after an in-ground concrete reservoir was built by York Region to supply water to Markham’s growing population.
The new reservoir holds 60,000 cubic metres of water - about 20 times more than the old tower.”

In the district of Haldimand-Norfolk: Caledonia Water Tower
Domtar Water Tower
This tower can serve as a reminder of Caledonia’s rich history regarding their gypsum mines and general industry. The Ontario Gypsum Company has operated on these lands and was bought out by Domtar in the 1950’s. Caledonia was the first to manufacture wallboard (drywall) which has been the chief product since 1916 and today remains the primary product of the gypsum produced by Domtar Gypsum.
