Water Tower To Be Repainted -- COLLINSVILLE, OKLAHOMA
March 2003 -- City authorizes work to begin

Rusty look aided by a setting sun ...

Feb 1963 photo from the archives of the Newspaper Museum In Collinsville when a new 6 foot section was added to the top (and a wider standpile) & increased storage from 50,000 gallons to 75,000.

Ted Wright Note: I recall a news story about Preston Stanley donning his scuba tank and helping with an earlier water tower refurbishment ... on the inside of the tank. Anyone knowing the year, please call or email. -- 3/23/2003
