The main achievement of the cities of the province in landscaping in the second half of the XIX - early XX centuries and a necessary factor for fighting fires was water supply system.
The first Siberian water pipeline appeared in Tyumen in 1864, at the expense of merchants I.A. Podaruyev, A.F. Poklevsky-Kozell, S.M. Trusov.
In 1911, the firm "Neptune" of the Partnership of Engineers "N.P. Zimin and Co." drafted and estimated a new water pipeline. The cost of construction was estimated at 477622 rubles 84 kopecks; the length of the water supply network was supposed to be 13,26 miles, taking into account the transfer across the Tura River to the Zarechnaya part of the city. Water intake in the amount of 150 thousand buckets per day was planned for the Trinity Monastery along the river above the city.
Due to the high cost of construction, they refused to carry out the Zareka area water pipeline. The construction started in 1913 was delayed due to the outbreak of the First World War. However, the citywide water tower on Ishimskaya Street (modern Ordzhonikidze Street) was built in 1914. By 1915, the construction work of the first stage of the water pipeline was almost completed, only imported machines and boilers were missing. Despite all the difficulties that arose in connection with the war, the construction was completed, the city water supply was connected to the electric pumps of the water intake facilities of the power plant.
With the development of electricity production, there was not enough, so in 1924 another powerful 2000 kilowatt power plant was added to the existing one. The station supplied the city with electricity until 1957 .
