From the La Junta Tribune-Democrat (Bette McFarren):

The new tank at 14th and Smithland is seventy-six feet in diameter and twenty-four feet high. it will go on line after being tested on Friday. The other new tank, at the airport, is forty feet tall and thirty feet in diameter. It is already on line. The existing newer tank, the one that used to have the big tiger on it, holds a million gallons and will continue to be in service. City Manager Rick Klein explained where we got the money for the new tanks: it is a loan of 1.85 million dollars at zero percent interest through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a federal program.
