Water Tower Construction
Construction has been ongoing since April 2016 for the construction of the new City Hall Water Tower. The Water Tower will hold 750,000 gallons of water...3 times the size of the existing City Hall Water Tower! The Water Tower supplies a portion of the water pressure to the public water system as well as storage.
Construction of the tower will slow during the winter months, but will continue through Summer 2017. The tower will be painted in 2017 with a light blue top and a dark blue bottom. The tower will not be operational until Summer 2017 so the existing tower will remain in operation until all testing of the new tower is complete and it becomes operational.
Once this new tower becomes operational in 2017, we will be bidding a project to demolish the existing water tower. The exact plan and timing for this tower has not been decided, but, rest assured, it will not remain in its current condition.

Water Tower Construction Time Lapse
The City Hall Water Tower is looking a little funny these days. The spikes that come out from the bulb are in place to support the containment while the tower is being sandblasted in preparation of the final painting. The contractor has sandblasted and painted the interior of the tower. The weather has not been very cooperative to allow them to move as efficiently on the exterior of the tower. As weather permits, they will continue to sandblast then paint the tower.
We are looking forward to its completion and appreciate all the patience while we are under construction.
