In a win for both the past and the future, Invercargill’s Water Tower, a class 1 heritage building, is to be strengthened and once again opened to the public.

The tower, which was completed in 1889, has been closed due to earthquake safety concerns in 2012.
Last night (April 8) the councillors voted to upgrade the the building to 67% of the building code.
$1.5 million has been set aside for the project, with the actual cost expected to be around $1.3 million.
There has been no decision as to when the work will commence and exactly how the tower will be used and made available to the public is yet to be determined.
