Downs Water Tower Restoration
|The Village has contracted with Veolia North America, formally Suez Advanced Solutions, to renovate our water tower both inside and out and provide ongoing maintenance and repair for the next 15 years.
This project will last through October and will include a complete strip and repainting of the water tower inside and out. In addition to the repainting, repairs will be completed and compliance with OHSA standards will be performed. One of the most important improvements will be a new water mixer will be added inside the tank. We hope this process will improve our water, but will not solve all our issues until the new plant is online.
We will be using temporary pressure tanks that will only hold 18k gallons of water compared to 100k while this work is being completed. Unfortunately during this time our water quality could suffer and we don't have adequate supply to do much outside of the daily backwashing we must do for our iron removal filter.
Please conserve water by not watering lawns.
Thank you for your patience in this first step toward fixing the water in the Village.
