The water tower work is ongoing and there is no word yet of when it will be completed. There are many factors that affect the work that is performed in the process of painting a municipal water tower, old paint must be scraped and harnessed carefully and disposed of in a way that does not allow paint to become airborne and possibly contaminate the area surrounding the tower. Temperature, be it hot or cold as well as humidity all have a factor on whether the paint will adhere properly.

If you didn’t catch the Town’s first work session for 2021 held last Wednesday you can access the meeting on their youtube channel or stay tuned to Colonial Beach News for articles summarizing the work performed at that meeting.
