North Baltimore Examines Replacing Water Tower

8/2/17 – 8:32 A.M.

North Baltimore officials want to replace one of the village’s water towers. The Courier reports the village has contracted Poggemeyer Design Group to design a new tower. Village Administrator Allyson Murray will try to get a zero-interest loan through the state Drinking Water Assistance Fund to pay for the project.

The new tower could cost around $1.4 million.

Officials say the tower near Jewitt Street is lower in height than North Baltimores other tower. That means it needs a booster pump to function, which, in turn, is tough on waterlines.
