Intake Tower #2, centrally located in the Mississippi River, was designed by the architectural firm Roth and Study. This Roman Renaissance tower was completed in 1915 and designed to look like a Roman Villa. It contains living quarters for the men who worked around the clock to control the amount of water drawn out of the Mississippi River. It was staffed with full-time crews until the late 1920s.
