Hermiston breaks ground on new water tower

East Oregonian - 04-18


A small crowd turned up at the northeast edge of Hermiston on Wednesday, to see the site where a water tower will soon stand. City councilors and county commissioners broke ground on a site at Northeast 10th Street and East Punkin Center Road, where construction crews will start working on a $4.1 million water storage and system expansion project. The project is expected to accommodate more than 1,000 new homes in Hermiston in the next 10 years.
