Painting in the sky

 

Guttenberg's water tower is undergoing maintenance work that includes exterior and interior painting and cleaning. Above, a crew from Utility Service Co. was on the scene Sept. 26  applying lettering atop a fresh coat of bright white paint. Other work includes the installation of a water circulator in the 150,000-gallon tank to improve water quality and prevent ice from forming inside the tank. The city recently entered into a 10-year $135,000 tower maintenance contract with USC that will help extend the life of the tower, built in 1986. (Photo courtesy of Dennis Roth)
