City Utilities Department Hosts Water Tower Tour
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - If you have been on the city’s south side recently, you have probably noticed a very tall structure being built. Today, citizens received an up close look at the Holly Road elevated water storage tank currently under construction.
The 171 foot tower will provide millions of gallons of potable water to residents, improve water quality, and stabilize pressure. The tank is being constructed with reinforced concrete, making it capable to withstand hurricane force winds. The $6.3 million water tower is part of a 2008 Capital Improvement Project and will be paid for with water revenue bonds.
