New water tower built in Sibley, IA

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The pressure was on to create consistent water pressure in Sibley, and the job is done only a year later.

The community of Sibley erected a new water tower this week after discovering a leak in the old one last summer.

The project cost around $1 million and is a better guarantee of water pressure in the community.

The city could have simply fixed the old tower, but officials said it was time for a change.

"It was time to do something, and we just decided rather than repair the vault and replace all the pumps, we would just build a second elevated tank," Dan Janssen, City Administrator said.

The technology within the tower that controls the water flow is not yet complete, but the water is already flowing through the new tank.
