Vandals left their mark on the town owned water tower on E. Pleasant Street
Umass just last summer refinished the larger of the two water towers located atop Orchard Hill on East Pleasant Street at a cost of just over $1 million dollars.
I guess the huge blank canvas was too much for vandals to ignore even though a new six foot high fence was recently erected around both towers. The smaller one is owned by the town of Amherst.
Adjacent larger water tower owned by UMass was also hit
Both water towers are enclosed by a standard 6 ft chain link fence
