The disappearing tower

More from Bill Massaro’s documenting of the water tower take down.

Day 4 finished with approximately 7.5 tiers of  plate remaining.


As of  6:30 pm today  approximately 4 full  tiers remain.


Demolition did not complete today as originally scheduled.


Although the entire West side of the tank was removed in the morning, mechanical problems with the bobcat halted the  removal and stacking of the cut plates in preparation for a planned off-site removal on Monday.


Dismantling of the tower should now complete Monday.  Removal of the plates off-site is dependent repair/replacement of the rented bobcat.  I will advise in tomorrow’s report.
