Remote Video Surveillance System (RVSS) cameras, manufactured by General Dynamics Corporation, affixed to a water tower owned by Military Highway Water Supply Corporation (MHWSC); 25.993561, -97.602867 (San Pedro, TX); 35mm infrared photograph; January 2024.

This is one of at least five (we believe there are more we have not yet located) water towers in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas that currently support Remote Video Surveillance System (RVSS) camera arrays. It is owned by the Military Highway Water Supply Corporation, a non-profit corporation supplying water for rural and domestic purposes in Cameron and Hidalgo Counties; the Border Patrol has similar arrangements with at least two other water providers in the region, Webb County Water Utilities and the Roma Water Treatment Plant. (See Colter's photograph of this tower here.)
