Description: 

The "tank" at the top of the water tower can be seen "standing against the sky above the Jefferson roof-line" (30). The water it holds begins to taste "brassy" after the metal that Flem Snopes tried to steal ends up at its bottom (30). But although the tower was originally thought of as "Flem Snopes's monument" (3), Chick Mallison says it is actually a "footprint" marking a step in Flem's rise in society (4).
