Downtown Water Tower Repainted
Work began on Tuesday, June 11 and is still ongoing
Celina City Council approved a contract to rehabilitate the downtown water tower at its regularly scheduled meeting on February 12, 2019. The work included minor repairs and repainting the exterior of the tank and support structure.
The existing paint was completely stripped and recoated. This process involved a complete containment shroud over the tank to ensure that stripping the exterior paint will not affect nearby businesses.
Upon completion, a new, decorative LED lighting system will be installed in time for Celina Bobcat football season.

The Celina icon was originally constructed in 1925 by Chicago Bridge and Iron. It is a 75,000 gallon riveted steel tank that stands approximately 120 feet in height. The tank was taken out of commission as a water tank in 2018 and has since served as an iconic symbol of Celina.
