Fairmount Water Tower Back On Line

Fairmount once again has a fully functioning water tower.

This is what it looked like after a storm passed through on July 14.

Strong winds pushed the top of the 94 year old tower to one side.

Crews finished repair work in late July, and after a couple of days of testing, water from the 50,000 gallon tower was declared safe for the community’s 400 residents.

Mayor Jon Nelk says the new water tower roof is more secure and expects it to last another one hundred years.
