Until the beginning of October, Algoma Utilities is painting its south water tower. Paint and water don't mix well, at least for public consumption, so the tower is dry until the project is completed. The system is already strained by the Second Street Bridge Project which involves temporary water service outages and relocating a downtown water main. General Manager Pete Haack says the tower painting project is causing issues.
Haack says that if residents have problems related to any of the major endeavors being undertaken do not hesitate to call Algoma Utilities.
