Why are water towers very tall structures?
The purpose of water towers is usually to supply water pressure for the distribution of the water, The higher the tower, the higher the pressure. The higher the pressure, the more water you can push through the pipes. Some locations near mountains simply use the pressure of the water in a reservoir located much higher than the community the water is being supplied to. In such areas water towers are relatively uncommon.

When do water towers release water?
Most water towers are built with two purposes in mind. One is to provide a storage facility for potable water, the other is to provide water pressure for the system. As such, the towers are typically always 'releasing' water. There are normally a couple of one way valves to insure there is no 'backwash' to contaminate the water in the tower, but the tank is providing pressure in much the same way as the tank of a toilet.
