From The Mountain Mail (Christopher Kolomitz):

Upgrades include replacement of a failed storage tank roof covering and erection of security fencing. The tank is made of concrete and was part of two open reservoirs. It was covered with a concrete roof during the early 1970s, later tar paper and gravel roofing was applied. Failed sections of roof coating can be lifted and contaminants can potentially enter the tank, Schmidt said. A new roof covering will be constructed of PVC membrane, water plant manager Lonnie Oversole said. The site consists of an infiltration gallery, chlorination system and the tank. Water from the tank is pumped into the city water system. Bid notices are set for publication Aug. 12 and 19 with work scheduled to begin Sept. 7, Schmidt said.
