The City of St. Charles water tower at Campton Hills Road and Main Street is getting a new coat of paint and updated design this summer. During the repainting process, a tent-like cover will be placed around the tower to protect the surrounding area as sanding and painting is completed.
The tower was built in 1985. This painting project will replace its original coating, which was last touched up in 2011. Repainting helps prevent rust and extend the lifespan of the tower.
