Thomas Hill Standpipe Shining Brighter 

It’s been called the crown jewel of Bangor and it’s shining a little brighter now.

The Thomas Hill Standpipe has new lights on the top circle.

The lights and wiring on the standpipe hadn’t been upgraded for more than a century.

” We’re using less electricity to light the crown, and the lightbulbs themselves, instead of lasting 6 months, will last 7 years,” said Kathy Moriarty, general manager of the Bangor Water District.

The lights go on every night.

You can tour the standpipe on December 11th.
