WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) -- A water tower in Clay County that was constructed in 1984 will soon become fully operational again.
Known as the Bryan water tower on the southeast side of West Point, it recently underwent some refurbishing and painting.
The 500,000 gallon water tower is one of three water towers the city owns.
Once the water tower goes back into service, it will allow the city to operate the south water treatment plant.
"The paint was peeling off," said Dwight Prisock, superintendent of West Point Water & Light Department. "We had some rusting, so we have our contractor out of Arkansas that won the bid, and he has completed everything except painting the logo on the side of the tower."
With a total cost of $280,000, funding for the project is being covered from operating funds.
