1. Water Reservoir Marker
Inscription.  Never Enough Water at the Station
Wells, springs and run-off could not supply enough fresh water for the station. This 300,000 gallong concrete reservoir and five large wooden water tanks were built to store water. To keep them full, a barge regularly ferried fresh water to the site. Today, the reservoir collects rainwater for landscape irrigation.

(The text repeats in Chinese)

埃尔斯、泉水和径流无法为车站提供足够的淡水。这个 300,000 加仑的混凝土水库和五个大型木制水箱是用来储存水的。为了让它们充满,一艘驳船定期将淡水运送到现场。今天,水库收集雨水用于景观灌溉。 Āi ěr sī, qunshuǐ
