I wonder if they are running water to areas farther away from the main base complex, hence the need for a taller water tower seen in your picture to provide increased water pressure farther away from the tower.
Was the new building construction near the main base area or more isolated?
Systems looking through long atmospheric paths may be limited by turbulence. A key measure of the quality of atmospheric turbulence is the seeing diameter, also known as Fried's seeing diameter. A path which is temporally coherent is known as an isoplanatic patch. Large apertures may suffer from aperture averaging, the result of several paths being integrated into one image

The RQ-170s have been heard launched from Creech via a scanner. I don't know if anyone photographed one at Creech. All I saw were Predators and Reapers.
It sure would be nice to see the triangle tower turn live. The speed would be indicative of the function. That is, does it rotate as a plane goes by? I have a hard time imagining it turning quickly.
Wow, whoever says that "Area 51 has relocated or is now an inactive base" clearly has no idea what the hell they're talking about...
There is TONS of new construction going on!!!
