Water tower going, going, almost gone at McCrum Park in Prairie Village

Crews have made swift work of the behemoth water tower that stood over McCrum Park. Since they began dismantling it Friday, they’ve managed to take down the entirety of the water tank itself, and have nearly desconstructed the support braces and legs. As of 5 p.m. Monday, all that remained was the bottom half of the support structure and a giant central pillar.

Workers piled the sheet metal from the tank’s exterior on the McCrum Park grounds, and loaded the leg work onto a giant flatbed truck for shipping:

The south half of the park will reopen once removal of the tank is complete.
