Council approves Verulam Water Tower makeover
“The Verulam Water Tower, located at the Corner of Verulam Road and Colborne Street East, is an integral piece of infrastructure to the delivery of safe drinking water within the town of Lindsay,” Amber Hayter, senior engineering technician with the City.
An earlier inspection of the tower identified several deficiencies in the existing coating on the interior of the tank. In areas where the coating becomes deteriorated the corrosion of the exposed steel becomes accelerated.
The exterior of the tower has also begun showing signs of deterioration as a result of weather and in many areas the paint has started peeling.
The project, expected to take about four months, will involve repainting the exterior of the tower as well as addressing interior deficiencies.
The project is being administered through the Public Works – Capital Projects group for the City’s Water and Wastewater division.
Work is scheduled to begin in early August and be complete by November 30.
