Back in August of 2020, crews began repainting Steinbach's water tower.

At that time, Mike Heppner, Head of Steinbach's Water Works Department, said some paint chips had been flaking off resulting in a need to re-paint large swaths of the tower. 

Crews painted the column in 2020 and in early 2021, Heppner said they were coming back to complete the upper bowl assembly

This past weekend, Heppner says crews were back to do some touch-ups. He notes they were only working on the tower for a couple of days to complete warranty work.
