The City of Titusville elevated water tower located near South Street (S.R. 405), adjacent to Brevard County School Board property, is scheduled to be dismantled. Demolition of the tank is scheduled to commence on Monday, February 28 and will take place over a two-week period. Metal from the tower will be recycled by the demolition contractor.
The demolition is not expected to impact traffic. Titusville water customers will not experience any change in their water service.
According to Water Resources Director, Sean Stauffer the tower is no longer needed for the water system and has been offline for over two years. “Because of the improvements we have made at the Armstrong Pumping Station, our consultant has confirmed that the tower is no longer needed to provide pressure to our distribution system.”
The tower, which is approximately 60 years old, has been offline for over two years. Costs to repair the tower are greater than demolition and were considered an unnecessary expense due to system improvements.
