Lovell, WY 400,000 Gallon Spherical Water Tower Going Great
Lovell got its second skyscraper last week – a 170-foot solid steel water tower erected Friday section by section by a crew from Phoenix Fabricators and Erectors of Indiana and Kentucky that has roughly matched the Western Sugar factory sugar bins as the tallest structure in the community.
When the 400,000-gallon tank is filled, it will provide greatly improved water pressure and fire flow for residents on the bench in the south portion of Lovell.
Almost as impressive as the tower was the crane that erected it, a 200-foot crane with a 650-ton capacity from JMS Crane Service of Billings that arrived on multiple trucks and was assembled Thursday at the tower site on the west edge of the Lovell Rodeo Grounds.
