If you live in the Middletown area, you may have noticed the landscape around Middletown Commons is starting to look a different. Don't see the difference? Look up. Demolition of the old 500,000 gallon water tower, which was constructed in 1968, began on Monday and will be completed by Friday. Construction of a much larger three million gallon water storage tank begins in August, with completion targeted for 2017. The new tank compliments the existing 10 million gallon tank and will help with water pressure in this growing area of town.
