The pipecontroltower is the tower that controls all the pipes... think of the pipes not as pipes, but as directions things are moving in. You're controlling all of that on a map, and the pipe shows where everything is going and you're changing it to be where it needs to go. You are in the control tower.
This is a jukugo word that uses the on'yomi readings of the kanji. You should be able to read this on your own.
If a huge tornado hit this area, how do you think the control tower would fare?
