Crosby Builds New Water Tower

Posted: Updated:

It took a year of construction, but Crosby's new water tower is finally in service. Some of the residents have really seen the difference recently.

The $1.65 million water tower in Crosby went into service last week. It was paid with energy impact grants from the state. With it in service, some locals still remember how the water used to be.

“When I was little it was always really yellow,” says Crosby resident Kayla Blekestad. “It always looked like you went to the bathroom in it. So, there was a gentleman that kept working with the water every single day and trying to get it better. He just got it better and now it tastes really good.”

The city needed this new water tower to help provide enough water and fire protection to the growing population. Crosby residents and businesses use about 250,000 gallons of water a day.

The immediate impact of the tower is better water pressure. The mayor added the city used to be at 45 pounds of pressure. Now, it is around 60 pounds.
