The 1 million gallon high tank was constructed in the late 1990s and is located on the corner of High St. and Forest Drive in Willow Springs. The high tank is a crucial part of the water infrastructure and maintains good pressure and plenty of storage for emergencies. Over the years the high tank begun showing sign of need of repair cosmically and internally. This being such a crucial part of our system the board of commissioners decided to complete rehabilitate the high tank and bring it back to its original glory. The tank has been completely drained and taken out of service while inside welders and sandblasters are working hard to ensure she stays structurally sound and safe to hold your quality drinking water. Once that is completed the inside will be cleaned, sealed, filled, chlorinated and sampled before being put back into service.
As for the outside of the tank it will be completely sandblasted and painted! The tank will remain close to the color that it was and will look great! Along with the new paint job we are installing a new garage door and updated security for the tank.
