Over $500,000 in Water Tank Improvements in Fisher Completed by Illinois American Water

Community landmark plays a vital role in water service and
community pride

FISHER, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Illinois American Water has completed rehabilitating the 100,000 gallon
water storage tank located on Jackson Street in Fisher. The investment
of approximately $500,000 helps to extend the life of the storage tank,
ensuring adequate water supply and water pressure for drinking water and
fire protection.

As a part of this project, critical maintenance was performed on the
tank. Painting of the interior and exterior was also completed. The
tank, which was originally constructed in 1973, will be placed back in
service this week.

According to Brian Wiemers, production superintendent for Illinois
American Water’s Champaign County service area, the fresh coat of paint
on the Fisher water tank protects it from the elements while
highlighting community pride. He said, “The Village of Fisher is a
vibrant community. We’re proud to be a part of Fisher and to feature the
unique Fisher Bunnie as well as the Illinois American Water logo on the
water tank. It will serve as a beautiful landmark for residents and
visitors for years to come.”

Placing the tank back in service will not impact water service. The
quality of the water will not be affected and will continue to meet all
federal and state water quality regulations.
