The new Cottonwood Creek tower is a tall drink of water and now features the new San Marcos City Brand.
Drivers on SH 123 one mile south of Old Bastrop Highway are now greeted by the new San Marcos City brand painted on the new Cottonwood Creek elevated water storage tank. The City of San Marcos Public Services Department completed painting the brand on the tower this week.
The one million gallon water storage tank was put into service in August. Contractors used a platform pulley system to paint the new brand on the north and south facing sides of the tank.
“The Cottonwood Creek tank not only welcomes motorists to San Marcos, but also plays a vital role in the operation of our water distribution system,” said Jon Clack, the city’s assistant director of public services. “It’s a proactive step in our planning for growth and increases the storage capacity at the surface water treatment plant to allow for 15,000 connections.”
The $2.8 million tank was identified in the water master plan for the city. It was co-ordinated through the city’s public services department with assistance from the capital improvements department.
The tank was constructed beginning in early 2009 by Landmark Structures I, LP, of Ft. Worth. Alan Plummer Associates, Inc. of Austin provided engineering and construction management.Email | Print
