Culpeper Mayor Mike Olinger was all smiles Tuesday after the Town Council voted 9–0 to authorize Town Manager Chris Hively to sign $1.66 million contract with Phoenix Fabricators and Erectors to build an elevated water tank on the Orange Road.
“Hey, anytime you can get a $1.5 million water tank for $338,000 you’ve got to be happy,” Olinger said.
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.

IRELAND — A new, 400,000-gallon water tower is going up on Division Road near 450 West.
Ireland Utilities began construction on the tower in the spring. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management informed the utility a few years ago that a new tank would be necessary to meet the growing needs of the area as land is developed into subdivisions.
According to state mandates, Ireland’s water utility must have enough water stored for two days of service in case of emergency.
The new water tower will bring the storage capacity up to 475,000 gallons versus the 75,000 gallons the current water tower in Ireland holds on its own. Two days of service require 500,000 gallons.
Phoenix will be exhibiting in booth #133 at the Kentucky / Tennessee AWWA Annual Convention in Lexington, KY July 9-12, 2017. Want to know more about raising or modifying your existing tower?
