It’s the largest elevated water tower in Salisbury.

In fact it’s four times higher than any other.

And the structure was unveiled in a ribbon cutting ceremony presided over by Salisbury University President Janet Dudely-Eshbach yesterday.

The 130-foot-tall Milford Street structure displays the University logo that consists of a silhouette of a seagull above the Salisbury University name in maroon.

The University paid $16-thousand for the paint and maintenance.

Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton says that the $3.5 million tower is needed to meet the Maryland Department of the Environment’s requirement for fighting fires.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that it will also strengthen the water pressure for many customers – especially in the southern part of the city.
