THE GOSHEN NEWS PHOTO BACK WHEN Oct. 27, 1983
Progress on repainting the Jackson Street water tower has been slowed by the rainy weather of the past several days, but work crews were back on the job Wednesday as the sun finall broke through the overcast. Workers are sandblasting and priming the tower. They must prime the raw metal which is uncovered each day to prevent rusting overnight. The tower will receive one primer coat, which is being applied with rollers, and two color coats which will be sprayed. The paint is formulated so that the overspray turns to powder if it is carried away by wind and will not harm cars and buildings in its path. The tower will be an "eggshell" color when the project is completed.
