Fred Penning, water department superintendent, announced today the water bourd has set Sunday afternoon, May 21, for an open house nt the plant which now has lalest equipment and standby service that can operate any or all parts of the plant rather than one well as previously. Toinarto damage to the plant was approximately $35,000. The two buildings wrecked housed electrical equipment of transformers nnd supplies and standby equipment of a Deisel' engine, tanks and starting equipment. The two structures have been replaced by one larger brick building 5.1 by 34 feet, which Is used as n warehouse and for control and standby equipment. The new building is 10 feet high and contains, as near as possible, a tornado - proof room of <reln- forced brick and concrete, measuring 27 by 17 feet. Construction began in November and will be'com- plete by open house date. Stntr tornado relief funds were used. The new equipment offers better service according to Penning.
