Atwater fixes frozen water tower
ATWATER - Crews from South Dakota were called in last night to thaw out Atwater's 100,000 gallon water tower.
Following several days of sub-zero temperatures this week, water in the tower had turned into an ice-cube Wednesday, with a small pocket of air in the middle, said City Clerk Goldie Smith.
If the problem had gone on much longer the tower could've been structurally damaged. "Kind of like a pop can in the deep freeze," said Smith.
