Just out of curiosity, what's the significance of the water tower and are you sure it was actually at the airfield or was it nearby? Normally they try to locate tall structures away from an airfield and the maps in the link above show potential obstacles and their heights but don't show a water tower.

It might not have been the airport but a water tower in that area. It had a very unique checkerboard type pattern not seen anywhere else

This may or may not help, but water towers that were near airports or in an airport flight path used to be painted in a checkerboard fashion. I remember two of them over off Kirby back in the late 60's-early 70's. I don't know if that was FAA or not, but there used to be quite a few of them around.
