Moorhead Public Service's Southside Water Tower Wins 2021 Tank of the Year Award

On Friday, October 22, it was announced that out of nearly 300 nominations, the winner of Tnemec Company, Inc.'s "2021 Tank of the Year" contest is Moorhead's own Southside Water Tower.

 

Tnemec’s Tank of the Year contest celebrates “the innovative and creative uses of its coatings on water tanks…Each year, tanks of all varieties from across the U.S. and Canada are narrowed down to determine the most impressive coating projects in the water tank industry.”

 

The artwork on the Southside Water Tower was designed by local artists Stephen Dorsey and Jack Lunde, and coordinated by Carrie Kinslow. After receiving community input on design themes, an Art Design Committee consisting of MPS Commissioners, MPS staff, City Council members, City of Moorhead staff, and community representatives worked together with the artists in creating the final design.

 

Moorhead’s winning water tower, along with eleven runners-up, will be featured in Tnemec’s annual water tank calendar.
