Water tank repairs mulled in Bellingham

Posted by Martin Finucane March 28, 2007 10:58 AM


Town Meeting voters in May will be asked to approve $900,000 in repairs to the Grove Street standpipe, a 130-foot-tall water tank that holds 1.3 million gallons.

Part of the cost would be offset by lease payments from additional cellular phone antennas on the structure. The tank has not undergone significant work for a decade, according to Selectwoman Ann Odabashian.

The board backed the repairs by a unanimous vote.
