Durham Farmers’ Market “Pop-up” Event – July 6, 2017

 


What's going on with the CT Water Tower?

The activity that you and others have seen at the Westbrook Tank over the past week or so has been by one of the cell phone carriers with facilities on the tank performing maintenance.  The activity is unrelated to the taking down of the tank.

We are continuing to work with a third party contractor to relocate the communication antennas from the existing tank to allow for the dismantling of the tank later this year.  As part of that work, the contractor will be floating balloons at the site later this week to gain vertical visual perspective.
