Another step in decommissioning of Linden’s 1934 water tank was completed on 28 October 2015 when sections of underground water pipes were removed and then capped around the perimeter of the water tower’s foundation. This process is referred to as air gapping. A.L. Franks Engineering of Texarkana, AR performed the work.
The next step toward preservation of the structure is repair or replacement of the tower’s anchor bolts. The Linden City Council will be discussing this action at their next meeting on 9 November 2015.
