Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Question:
What is the fence going up around the water tower on the hill near the southeast end of Thornden Park for.Answer:
The Syracuse Water Department says the concrete dome roof on the tower is being replaced with stainless steel.
The old top has been in place since about 1925 and the new roof is expected to last about as long.
The next step in the process is to bring in a crane and crew that will dismantle the roof piece-by-piece then lay a foundation for the new roof.
The department says the project should be completed by late fall of this year.
The only road being closed for construction is the dead-end drive leading to the tank.If you have a question for the Your Stories team call (315) 446-9900 or email YourStories@9wsyr.com.
