Workers from HCI Industrial & Marine Coatings, Inc., put up scaffolding around the city of Vancouver's Water Tower 7. Crews will repaint the 115-foot-tall water tower this year, in part to prevent corrosion and extend its life. The steel tower is one of 11 enclosed water stations in the city that draw drinking water from underground aquifers. The $633,569 repainting project is expected to be completed by this fall.
