St. Charles Water Tower to Get Fresh Coat of Paint

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. The feature image shows what the painted tower will look like once painting is completed.

The water tower’s original coating was last touched up in 2011. Repainting helps prevent rust and extend the lifespan of the tower.

“The new paint will protect the integrity of the structure’s steel and improve the tower’s appearance,” said St. Charles Environmental Services Manager Tim Wilson. “Our water towers are integral pieces of the water distribution system, so we need them to be in top condition inside and out.”
