Snellville’s skyline will look a bit different by 2023.
The lollipop-shaped blue water tower, which peeks over the tree line of the Nob Hill Subdivision west of Scenic Highway, will be removed in late 2022 or 2023 to make way for a new pump station.
The Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources is currently in the midst of a multi-phased project involving the removal of the water tower. The project’s design phase will be complete by early 2021 and the project will go to bid by mid-2021, county officials said. Construction on the new required pump station will begin in the first quarter of 2022.
County officials estimate it should only take two to three weeks to remove the tower.
