The painting of the City of Chillicothe’s Fifth Street Water Tower next to Ohio University-Chillicothe is nearing completion after beginning in mid-May of this year.
The water tower has a new City of Chillicothe logo and the tower is being painted all white.
The contractor completely removed both the interior and exterior paint on the Fifth Street elevated water storage tank, and is repainting it with a three coat system.
Moving backwards in the project phase, here is the evolution of the project as seen from photos Litter Media has taken of the painting work.
The (above) photo taken on June 18th shows the crown and wires used to drape a large curtain around the project, which keeps paint from landing on surrounding homes. The curtain was not present on the day our photo was taken due to the painters being off work that day.
Above is one of the photos from our original Litter Media article published on May 14th, where Chillicothe Utilities Director David Fishel said the painting of the Fifth Street elevated water storage tank was expected to take approximately 60 days to finish.
