New water tower almost complete in Demopolis, AL
The Demopolis skyline changed recently with the addition of a new water tower by the river. The tower, built to replace the old tower by the river that was built in the 1930s, will be fully functional by Sept. 1, according to Demopolis Water Works general manager Brooks McCants.
“It’s ready to be filled, but it will be around Sept. 1 before we begin using it,” McCants said. “We will then valve off the old tank for two weeks to make sure there aren’t any problems, then we will completely shut off the old tank.”
