Following the World Trade Center incident on September 11, 2001, the Department of Homeland Security identified potable water infrastructures as being susceptible to terrorism. Numerous steps have been taken to ensure the safety of our drinking water infrastructure including, but not limited to, modification of storage tower access ladders, security fencing, tamper proof locks, etc.
Water Tower Access Guidelines have been established for City employees and contractors needing to have access to the water towers. Please contact the Police Department at 309-732-2525 to apply for a Water Tower Access Permit.
