Here's a slightly less insignificant town. So much so that some of the inhabitants living withing a 20 mile radius know where it is.

      This lot has been tested in-game, it was found that at least 2 of them are required to almost completely reduce pollution across a large tile as well as to provide water across a grid of pipes covering the whole tile.  It was tested also with the Utility Radius and Traffic Pollution Modd.  Use the Data View and Cheetah Speed to monitor changes in water supply, air and water pollution.  The pump is programmed to consume a very small amount of water so plop the pump in a non-polluted area as tests indicate it will not immediately clean its own base area and may fail to operate. 
      Location: Water Menu under Utilities Menu, and Power Menu for 1x1 Generator
      Stats:
      Lot Size: 5 (width) by 6 (depth)
      Water Produced and Treated: 1,000,000 cubic meters per hour.
      Pollution Reduction: -1200 over 300 
      Plop Cost: 25,000§
      Maintenance Cost: 10§
      Jobs: 15§, 290§§, 15§§§
      Moderate Landmark and Park Effect. 
      Transit and Network Enabled
      Power Consumed:  200 MWh (megawatt hours)
      Dependency: Included base texture .dat file.
      Maxis Night-lighting
      FOLDER: Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction V1
      File: List of Alternate Water Systems.txt
      File: Preview and Install.html
      File: Readme.txt
      SUB-FOLDER: Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction
      This is the folder inside the unzipped title folder to be placed in your User\Documents\Simcity 4\ Plugins folder.  It contains 2 files: 1. the Radical_Water_Pump.SC4Lot, and 2. the BaseTexturesElements_RadicalWaterPump.dat file with base textures extracted from my Vol.1 Base Textures Elements package.  If you use the larger package then delete the smaller .dat file included as the textures don't need to be loaded twice.  The larger package is linked below:
      Base Textures Vol 1.1: Elements, for SC4 1.1.0
      SUB-FOLDER: 500 MWh Power Generator 1x1
      File: RadicalWaterPump_PowerGenerator.SC4Lot
      I've added a 1x1 lot to generate power for the water pump.  If you use the Data View Moisture Mod to locate a high volume of water it may be in a remote area, otherwise a non-polluted area may also be in a remote area.  The power generator is equal to 2½ times the wind power plant.
      Previews:
      The 2nd preview shows the progressive reduction of air pollution; the reduction of water pollution is about the same. The test city has 2 heavy industry areas and congested traffic generating severe pollution over the entire tile. A third radical water pump would completely eliminate both across the entire tile.
      The 3rd preview shows at bottom Cori's Data View of Moisture mod which uses the radiation data view to show changes in moisture from rainfall.  In more complicated terrain the moisture data view is useful to see where to place water pumps which depend on aquifers. The mod is linked below:
      Cori's DataView - Moisture v 2017.01.22 by @CorinaMarie
      The top 2 frames show the progressive increase of water-flow over the entire tile.   Water pipes are tedious to place in large tiles requiring about a 30x30 grid.  To make the task of watering the tile easier use the Utility Radius and Traffic Pollution Reduction Modd by RalphaelNinja linked below:
      UtilityRadius TrafPollution Modd by @RalphaelNinja
      The last preview is of this .SC4Lot in production in the Lot Editor for anyone who has enjoyed using SC4 as a design tool, creating .SC4 city tiles, and who may be considering taking the next step of creating .SC4Lot files.  Using Lot Editor is not much more complicated.  Below is the tutorial that got me started almost a year ago.
      Lot Editor: Beginner's Tutorial by @jbbry232
      ___________________________________________
      Sci-Fi Description:
      The science-fiction descriptions for alternate tech. lots with radical improvements helps to fit the lot conceptually into the game while justifying what others might simply call a 'cheat'.  This one is a bit of a whopper, but entirely plausible. 
      Water is compacted into super-dense ice crystal cubes and delivered to the Aquifer generators by vertical descent from orbit.  Anti-grav. tech. is used to manage the very heavy cubes (not shown).  The cubes are then decompressed and the water is pumped into the aquifers, providing fresh-water to civilization and to ecosystems suffering drought.  The added benefit is improvement of atmospheric, tectonic, and tidal ⇌ (equilibrium), and saltwater pH balance for life-support of the Earth.   This tech. may also be used to re-pack glaciers effective to surface albedo and global climate improvement .
      ___________________________________________
      INSTALL:
      To install copy and paste the Radical Water Pump and Pollution Reduction folder into your User\Documents \SimCity 4\Plugins folder. 
      To also install the power generator copy and paste the 500 MWh Power Generator 1x1 folder into the folder above.

      These textures are freely useable and distributable for any SC4 user created content, if they are used in lot-making it is better to refer to them as a dependency and link back to this file to keep file space on the STEX free of mulitiple repeated content.  The texture data file is located in the FOLDER: Elements Textures DAT, 3 sample lots are in the FOLDER: Elements Sample Lots, and 1 7x8 test lot showing all 55 textures  is now included in the FOLDER:  Test Lot 7x8 Park. Also included are the 2 previews showing all the textures and this text in readme.txt and HTML.
      The texture '.dat' file size is 498K with 55 textures.  This volume is called 'Elements', including diagonal, broken, patterned and squared stone, dirt, grass, metal, pavement, sand, water and wood.  Also included are 3 sample lots found in the Parks Menu, each have been made functional for radical purposes of helping with start-up cash, reducing pollution and garbage, and recovery from nuclear meltdown.
      DAT FILE INCLUDED:
      FOLDER: Elements Textures DAT
      FILE: SC4_BaseTextures_Vol01_1_Elements.dat
      FOLDER: Test Lot 7x8 Park
      FILE: A0A_Base_Textures_Vol01_Elements_55_Test.SC4Lot
      This is one lot with all 55 textures in a 7x8 grid.  This lot may be used to preview the textures in-game, then delete. 
      FOLDER: Elements Sample Lots
      ---------------------------------------------
      1.) Subfolder: Patterned Grass (Anti Pollution)
      Menu description: Base Textures Elements (Anti-Pollution)
      Vol. 1: Grass Texture.  This lot is a sample which also provides some radical relief from pollution and garbage.
      _________________________________
      2.) Subfolder: Color Reg Mark (Radiation  Reducer)
      Menu Description: Base Textures Reg. Colors (Anti-rad.)
      Vol. 1: Elements, Use this lot as a registration mark for color and contrast.   In RGB, Red (255,0,0), Green (0, 255, 0), Blue (0, 0, 255), and Gray 50% (127, 127, 127).  This lot will radically decrease radiation.  Use this lot in the event of a nuclear power plant meltdown.  When you plop this lot you will see the Maxis 'Sparkles of Purification'.
      _________________________________
      3.) Subfolder: SC4 Logo (50K Business Deal)
      Menu Description: Base Textures Elements (Bus. Deal)
      Vol. 1: Elements. 55 Textures: Stone, Dirt, Grass, Metal, Pavement, Sand, Water, Wood.   Use Lot Editor to see all the textures. This lot will radically increase your income by 50,000 Simoleons a month,  Use this lot to help get your city started, then bulldoze it.   When you plop this lot it will appear as a 'Business Deal' in your budget panel.
      _________________________________
      INSTALL the TEXTURES and SAMPLE LOTS
      To install the sample lots copy and paste the 'Elements Sample Lots' folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.  The sample lots are found in the Parks Menu.
      To install the textures copy and paste the 'Elements Textures DAT' folder into your User\Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.

      ABOUT the TEXTURES, INFO FOR LOTTERS and GAMERS
       
      The texture images are derivatives of images from a variety of commonly, freely shared sources, hand re-worked for use with SC4.  The design of the textures leans toward lower contrast, saturation and brightness as more usual in realism, and for dimmer screens.  
      If using them for creating and distributing SC4 lots the '.FSH' file may be extracted and included as a '.DAT', but don't re-distribute changed associations between the image and the ID (instance) as that could impact another user of the file.  No crediting is required, but no claim of original artwork should be made if redistributing them with SC4 lots.
      The Texture ID Range was assigned by the BSC Texture Index at SC4 Devotion.  http://sc4devotion.com/forums/index.php?topic=2101.0  To redistribute variations of the textures or to make your own, request and use a unique personal Texture ID Range at SC4D.

      I'm wondering what you guys do to create a small pond... one that is larger than the tiny ploppable pond props but too small to create with actual game water. I wind up doing stuff like this and I feel a bit dumb. Is there a better way?

      RAH Wat-Air Inc. v2
      This is the latest updated version  (June 2015) of my Wat-Air Inc. lot. (Wat-Air Inc. v2)
      It's the final creation and will clean the water and air in a small to medium city.
      Please replace any older versions with this version 2. It's the better of them.
      It must be connected to your main water supply or used as the main water supply for it to work properly. Connect those pipes from the pump to that flange!
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Description:
      Got water pollution? Got air pollution?
      Need water treatment? Need air treatment?
      Need water purification? Need air purification?
      Well, brother, you've come to the right lot.
      You are looking at a revolutionary breakthrough in clean air and clean water.
      This process sucks all the air it can suck into the large turbo sucker than separates the H2 from the O found in the air and reprocesses the air into large green ionization balls which are than expelled from the top of the big blue ionization building.
      The 'smoke' you see is nothing more than hot steam used in the process.
      Backed by little steam injectors, they expel the ion balls into your city's atmosphere.
      The steam also keeps those little green buggers soft and pliable while they float around your city devouring any and all nasty particles in the air.
      It's revolutionary, I tell you!
      The 'waste' from the breaking down of the H2 from the O is 99.44% pure so it can be pumped back into the water system, completely cleaning all grunge and any nasties it finds. Yup, you heard right! Back into the main water system! These little goodies are called waterons and work like tiny microscopic scrubbing bubbles floating around throughout your water system.
      It's revolutionary, I say!
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Note 1:
      It was tweaked to clean two nasty coal burning power plants and one incinerator
      I have in one of my city's.
      If you have more dirty industry than that, you may need to plop two or more of them.
      It is also residential and commercial friendly. It can be plopped most anywhere.
      I've kept the stats within reason keeping it from being an actual CHEAT lot.
      The updates are:
      Increased radius area out to 144.
      Increased the plop cost from 10,000 simolians to 15,000 simolians.
      BUT reduced monthly costs from 500 to 200 simolians.
      Reduced garbage output.
      Added a small water pump, the same as the small water pumping station in the game.
      And a couple other minor unimportant thingys.
      Note 2:
      Don't forget to connect this lot to your main water supply or use it as the main water supply for it to work properly. Connect those pipes from the pump to that flange!
      Stats:
      Plop cost: 15,000 simolians
      Monthly cost: 200 simolians
      Bulldoze cost: 1,000 simolians
      Jobs Generated: 600 ($=100, $$=200, $$$=300)
      Installation:
      Unzip the 'RAHWatAirIncv2.zip' folder and place the lot file in your,
      My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins folder.
      Dependencies:
      There are no dependencies other than Maxis bldgprop_vol1 & bldgprop_vol2 OR Maxis Prop Names&Query Fix
      ENJOY!!!
       
      A little credit goes to SimCoug for helping with the tweaks.

      Hi, My first attempt with B.A.T, This Water Tower had been build to have one more choice between the "too little" Waterpump and the "Too expensive Huge Water Pump", Like you will see, workers are still busy around the Water Tower, its a must to have a Good quality water (but no exces around! Nature is frail!). Last minute Info: those workers are a bit noisy, so... Thx and...Enjoy! (A special thanks to all the Tutorial Bat author found in EA site and Simptropolis.com) Installation: Just unzip all the files in \My Documents\....\Simcity 4\Plugins.
       
      Dependencies:
      Gizmo Vehicle Props Vol.3
      CSX Mega Props Vol01
