Clemson House Water Tower to be repurposed

by - Assoc. Editor -

The Clemson House Water Tower is currently being dismantled after almost 70 years of usage. The Tower was built in 1950 and is a 155-foot structure and held 200,000 gallons of water.

A new one-million gallon water tower will be built on Kite Hill and should be completed by the summer of 2016.

Some of the pieces will be used by local sculptor Joey Manson. Manson has done various sculptures including the "Shift-Ascent" steel sculpture that is located outside of Sirrine Hall across from Fernow Cafe.
