מגדל המים במולדת
בריכת המים ועמודי הבטון נוצקו על ידי "סולל בונה" בשנת 1936. המגדל סיפק מים לבתי שכונת מולדת שהיו פזורים במרחב. בחלל שנוצר מתחת לבריכה נבנה בעזרת בלוקים של אבן חדר תצפית ושמירה.

באר המים של שכונת מולדת נחפרה בשנת 1930 על ידי המודד חיסין שהיה גם היזם ובעל חברת "המזרח" שרכשה את אדמות האזור. כעבור שנים הועברה הבאר ועמה זכות השימוש במים לידי חברת "מקורות".

Translation of the text on the sign:

The water tower in the Moledet neighborhood
The water pool and concrete pillars were cast by Solel Boneh in 1936. The tower supplied water to the homes of the Moledet neighborhood that were scattered throughout the area. In the space created under the pool, an observation and guard room was built with the help of stone blocks.

The water well of the Moledet neighborhood was excavated in 1930 by surveyor Hisin, who was also the developer and owner of the Mizrahi company, which purchased the area’s land. Years later, the well and with it the right to use the water was transferred to the Mekorot company.
