Representatives from Illinois American Water were joined by representatives of the City of Pekin and the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce, as they celebrated the completion of the community’s new 1.25-million-gallon elevated water storage tank located at 1700 Riverway Drive.
According to Roger Goodson, operations superintendent for the Pekin District, this investment of over $3 million ensures reliable water service to customers. “The water tower is a critical component of our water infrastructure. The new tank will help ensure adequate supply for residents, businesses and fire protection,” said Goodson.
This investment includes a spheroid tank design that required minimal land use, reducing environmental impact. The new water tower welcomes visitors to the area with the City’s unique marigold logo.
