From 1909 to 1912, the Jewish banker and business councillor Hermann Frenkel had a water tower built in Kehrigk with a total height of 37m in order to be able to supply all houses with water. A machine room was built on a platform 67 meters above sea level. The first borehole was drilled 128 meters below the machine room. The extracted water passed through a candle filter system and was then pumped 30 meters up in a boiler to a platform in the tower.

In 1932 Mr. Hermann Frenkel died and in 1934 his heirs sold his property and thus also the water tower, to the cigarette machine manufacturer Johann Carl Müller, d. 1944, from Dresden. His heirs were expropriated after the end of the 2nd World War. The further management up to the establishment of the water associations in the middle of the 90's, was taken over by the waterworks Storkow. At the end of the 90s, this function was taken over by the water association Alt-Schadow, which was later taken over by the MAWV Königs Wusterhausen. Prior to this, the entire drinking water network in the village was renewed in 1987. In GDR times, the tower was not accessible to citizens because of military relevance.In 1997, the staircase with a total of 98 steps and the roofing with copper sheeting were renewed.

The water tower became a lookout tower, from which one has a fantastic panoramic view over the village and the surrounding landscape with a lot of forest and lakes.

Today, the renovated lookout tower is the landmark of the Storkow district. On the upper floor, panels provide information about the surrounding area. The Kolberg, the Rauener Berge and the Krausnicker Berge can be seen. From April to October, the tower is accessible every day from 10 am to 6 pm.
