Water Tower Update and Time Lapse Video

Water Tower Update 3-15-22

City staff is documenting the progression of the new water tower as it is being built. A time-lapse camera has been placed facing East with Highway 12 in the background to take a daily photo and show the work completed each day. 

Check out this short time lapse video of the water tower progression for February and March on our City Facebook page!

It was interesting to see the first piece started to be picked up by the crane at 8:20am and was in place by 8:45am. Water Tower 2-7-22
