The City of Adel began work painting and servicing the north water tower (near 15th and Prairie) this week. This maintenance is typically performed once every 10 – 20 years and will increase the life of the tower. Service on the north water tower is expected to last through August. Once the north tower is finished, work will begin on the south water tower (near the Adel Family Aquatic Center) in late August. Both towers are expected to be completed in October.
Due to the painting and servicing of the towers, variances in water pressure will occur. These variances may occur at different times and in different places in the city from now until the project is completed. In addition, the city will be relieving water pressure in response to the maintenance work by periodically flushing some fire hydrants.
The city will post reminders about this project to its website (www.adeliowa.org) and to its Facebook and Twitter pages.
