It took many years before Hellevoetsluis got a water pipe. Before that time, the navy had a so called watership in operation, with which they fetched water from the Meuse. The navy didn't like this way of getting water anymore and thus the schout-bij-nacht threatened that the navy would leave the city, if there wouldn't be a water pipe quickly. This thread helped and the water tower was being built in 1896. The water tower was taken into operation on 31 August 1896. Because of this, Hellevoetsluis was the first municipality on the island of Voorne-Putten with a water pipe.
