The new tank is in place, but doesn't have water yet because the tank still needs to be disinfected. Current work includes
installing landscaping around the tank
coating the tank exterior (delayed because of weather)
restoring the playground area to original condition
making the park accessible while the grass and landscaping get established
Watch the mural take shape
The finished tank will have a scenic mural painted on its exterior this summer. We'll post the mural painting schedule on this page as soon as we have it. You might enjoy watching the mural take shape.
As part of the City's adopted Water Comprehensive Plan, we replaced the potable water storage tank located in Penn Park to double its storage capacity to one million gallons. The new tank is in the same location as the existing tank, but has a larger footprint. The estimated construction cost is $2.7M.
