Starting Monday, Aug. 15, the Urbana Water Division will take the water tower located on Union Alley (commonly referred to as the Gwynne Street water tower) offline in preparation for repair, rehabilitation and painting of the exterior. The tank is anticipated to be out of service six to eight weeks. The city does not expect any problems other than possibly a slight decrease in water pressure for residents in the immediate area.
If anyone experiences severe water pressure problems, report the issue to the Utility Division, 937-652-4315. If any large water consumption such as pool filling is planned, contact the Water Division in advance by calling 937-652-4335.
