Central States News: Maryville MO Can't Completely Fill New Water Towers

Imagine your town spending beaucoup $$$ for two new 750000-gallon water towers and then finding out that you can only fill them to the 70% mark...


That's the deal in Maryville where- according to this story in the MARYVILLE (MO) DAILY FORUM- the issue appears to be "an engineering problem" due to the lower elevation of a 3rd existing water tower in that northwest Missouri town.


A Kansas City engineering firm- Olsson Associates- is reportedly working with the City of Maryville to rectify the problem.

Reminds me of a bridge building in Merriam Ks once but for some reason the west side and the middle didn't line up with the east side on Turkey Creek. At the station we was calling it "The Turkey Over Turkey Creek"
