A fire in 2001 destroyed a lot of the interior, at that time a restaurant was located in the upper part. Since then the water tower has been closed and its future remains uncertain; due to a huge maintenance backlog it will cost a lot of money to give it a new destination..

Each manhole cover has the words "CAMPUS STELLAE" -referring to Santiago de Compostela- and each pictures a shell referring to a part of the human body. The photo above shows the first cover with a whelk ("wulk" in Dutch), which stands for the Pilgrim's feet on the shell-path that will lead him to Santiago de Compostela.
