[ARCHIVED] Bedford Water Tower Updates

March 2 Update

Crews have been working hard on the Cummings Drive water tower rehabilitation project! We’re happy to report all interior sandblasting is done and crews have started work on internal tank repairs. Over the last few days, they have also been sandblasting the exterior of the tank and applying a priming coat.

Once the tower is blasted and primed, crews will begin the epoxy coating process (this helps protect the lifespan of the tank) and installing upgrades to the electrical and SCADA system, which allows Public Works to remotely control and monitor treatment data. After these updates are made, crews will then repaint the exterior with the winning water tower design. All work is anticipated to be completed late spring.

January 25 Update

Crews have started rehabilitation work on the water tower on Cummings Drive. They are installing the tank shroud so sandblasting operations can begin to remove the old paint coating on the tower. There is also work being done to the inside, with crews making repairs and replacing ladders. 

Once crews finish the interior work, they will begin repainting the exterior with the winning water tower design chosen in November. 

In addition to the tank rehabilitation project, the City has added a mixer to the tower near Fire Station #3 and will also add it to the Cummings Drive Water Tower. Mixers circulate the water, which improves water quality, prevents ice formation, and lengthens the life of the water tower. 

For questions about either project, please email Public Works.
