It seems like with most glycol chillers, the glycol doesn't have to be chilled below 32?. Why not just use water as the coolant instead?

I'm currently in the process of planning a 30-seat brewpub with a 3.5 bbl system that includes 4 serving tanks and 3 fermenters. Trying to decide between purchasing glycol-cooled serving tanks vs. building-out a refrigerated room to store the serving tanks. Most likely I'll need a cold area for storing a few kegs and bottles anyway? What are the pros/cons of each option and how do the costs - both upfront and for routine maintenance - compare in each situation?
