GREAT FALLS – Contractors working on behalf of the City of Great Falls are removing two water storage tanks at Boston Heights Park located along Central Avenue and 33rd Street North.

The tanks have been out of service for 10 years, according to city engineer Dave Dobbs. It would now be more expensive to fix them than build new tanks.

Dobbs said the smaller tank was built in 1902 and the larger one was built in 1920 so they have passed their useful life.

He added the tanks are in the wrong place and at the wrong elevation to be used effectively.
