The new water tower at the former Medfield State Hospital site was only just finally filled last week, when the new tank sprang a leak. To fix the leak it had to be drained of all that water just used to fill the tank. The issue then arose as to who should pay for all that water, and the tank manufacturer has agreed to pay per the email today from Mike Sullivan.
I asked if I could have the drained water for my lawn – we even numbers cannot water for another week.
I will ask Mike just how much we charge for a tank of water.
BTW, I recently undertook a survey of water tower styles for the town by driving to Indiana and back, and I can now report that one-third the water tanks are our style and the rest are rounded. Some of our styles, however, do have peaked tops.
Phoenix Fabricators, the contractor for the State Hospital water town has agreed to pay the cost of water for having to drain the tank to repair the leak. Mike S.
