On Thursday, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place to celebrate the completion of the water tower project at Craig Park.
However, city engineer Brian Pohlar said the tower won't be fully operational until around the first of the year.
Pohlar said the filling of the tank will begin Monday, and it must be filled to the 5-feet mark and let sit for at least six hours before the tank can be fully filled.
Pohlar said his crew would also be installing a valve turning machine Thursday, which mechanically controls the valves in the distribution system.
Mayor Ann Bradshaw, who has been working on the water tower project the majority of her time in office, said she is happy to see it completed.
"I'm really happy it's done," Bradshaw said. "I'm happy we were a part of it, and I'm glad I had a great council and city employees to work with."
