Jordan is approaching the 5000 sims mark! Yay!
But wait, it's not all fun and joy, you know. 5000 sims need water and trucking in thousands of bottles of water every week is becoming a logistical nightmare, to say the least. And don't get me started on toilets... No, we need a solution. We need water! As luck would have it there is a nice fresh water spring underneath Jordan. Isn't that convenient?
Jordan's first water tower!
Of course we could have 5000 sims walking up and down to the water tower, turn open the faucet and fill their cups, but that probably wouldn't work for very long. Lets lay down some pipes instead.

Let there be water!
And Jordan grows on...
Now for some nice trivia about water and Simcity.
Did you know:
- that 'Water in the desert' is the cheatcode in Simcity 3000 to access all water facilities?
- that the official Simcity 3000 manual actually recommended laying down pipes underneath streets to be sure all buildings had water?
- that, until Simcity 4 came along, this was a widely accepted strategy for Simcity games?
- that, incidentally, one of the biggest strategy guides for Simcity 4 recommends not laying down water until you have at least 5000 sims in your city?
