A few touch-ups to the tower

The water tower on Hudson Drive is going through a little transformation during the summer months. 

A little, $1 million transformation. 

Built in the mid-1990s, the water tower is being repainted, and a few minor repairs are being made to it, as well. 

This is the first time that the water tower has been subject to a rehabilitation in its 20-year life. The paint job will help protect the tower from corrosion, according to Woodbury Public Works Director Klayton Eckles. 

The 176-foot-tall tower holds 2 million gallons of water.
