Eloy hosted the Inaugural Lighting of the iconic Water Tower on December 30, 2020. The water tower will continue to light up in recognition of community initiatives and various holidays.

The Eloy Water Tower was constructed in 1945 and was in service for approximately 20 years before it was replaced with a new ground mounted water storage tank and booster station in the mid-1960s. For the past 50 years the water tank has been empty yet it has been an Eloy Icon for many years, and many people associate Eloy with this landmark.
On October 26, 2020, the Eloy City Council awarded two contracts for improvements that would elevate the landmark. In phase I, PCL was awarded the contract to repair and paint the water tower. The electrical equipment and installation of the lights was installed by Holiday Lighting during phase II. The water tower has over 2,100 LED lights.
Over the months and years to come, the water tower will change colors based upon the time of year, a particular event, or celebration.
