Edgerton has been hard at work and can now say that the water tower repair process to their two-tank system is officially over.
After an inspection conducted by the EPA in 2020, implementation issues and needed repairs were made apparent to village officials.
The project was estimated to cost $1,171,580 to complete, and repaired two tanks that were constructed in 1969 and 1937.
Due to the age of these tanks, an abrasive blast was needed to remove any primers that may have been made with heavy metals before adding new rigging, drainage holes, fall-prevention devices, ladders, grated covers, and completing many repairs.
The towers are structurally sound, and these recent repairs bring these tanks up to date with regulations enforced by the Ohio EPA and OSHA.
