  • Historic water tank will be torn down: Structure built in 1918 to be replaced in late 2014 or early

    Jan 16, 2014

    Fort Belvoir plans to replace historic Water Tank 188, an iconic fixture in the Belvoir skyline, in either late 2014 or early 2015. Water Storage Tank (WST) 188, located on 16th Street and visible from much of South Post, was one of the first permanent structures built on what is now known as Fort Belvoir. When WST was constructed in 1918, Fort Belvoir was known as Camp A. A. Humphreys. The camp was established as an Army installation near the onset of World War I to serve as a training ground for the Army's Engineer School. Originally WST 188 stored water pumped from Accotink Creek via the Humphrey's filtration plant. The tank now stores water supplied by Fairfax Water. The old filtration plant was retired in 1970 and now serves as the Eleanor Kennedy Homeless Shelter. The Shelter is located at the intersection of Pohick Road and U.S. Route 1.
