Emporia's New Water Tower after the Tank raising

BG Staff members Bruce Boettcher, Paul Owings and David Goss were on site for the Tank raising of the new water tower in Emporia on September 10th, 2019.  The all-day event drew a lot of local interest from the community with people dropping by throughout the day to view the progress.

The 1 million gallon Composite Water Tower has an approximate height of 199' for the Highest Water Level (HWL). Funding for the water tower was accomplished through a US Department of Commerce EDA Grant and local matching funds. The Water Tower project is due to be substantially complete at the end of November.
