Water Tower Sandblasting Underway

Water Tower

As part of the water tower painting project, a 190-foot tall containment curtain has been installed completely around the tank to allow for work including sandblasting.

Residents may hear noise in the following weeks during the sandblasting of the tank depending upon where crews are working. Exterior/interior painting will begin once sandblasting is complete.

The project is expected to be finished by the end of the summer, weather permitting. Contact Public Works at 847.317.7245 if you have questions or concerns.
