August 29, 2016 - Finley Water Tower Update:
The old water tower is currently in the process of draining down, and converting over to the new water tower. It is anticipated it be completed by next week sometime. After the conversion is accomplished, the old tower will be taken down.
September 14, 2016 - Old Tower Down! Starting in the wee hours of the morning, the demolition process began. The transition has gone well and the new tower is in operation. Technology and improvements will benefit the community for many years down the road keeping Finley viable. At a 100,000 gallons the new water tower doubles the capacity of the old one. The project took approximately 3 years. Much credit must go to Moore Engineering for their part in helping with the planning, design, financing, and getting final approval from appropriate entities.
Finley proudly sports a new water tower in it's horizon that will last them for years to come providing safe, clean water for the town!
