Newark Star Ledger Report

Robert Misseck, reporter for the Newark Star Ledger has alerted me to his 2003/09/05 article containing these facts:

  • a 216 foot tower in Edmund Oklahoma is taller and holds more water, but technically that design is a water spheroid. Union’s Water Sphere is still the tallest true water sphere.
  • Chicago Bridge and Iron also has constructed water towers in Hightstown, Tuckerton, Long Beach and Salem, New Jersey.
  • Armand Fiorletti of Linden remembers being a part of the team that built the sphere in Union while a member of the engineering firm of Grassman, Kreh & Mixer Inc. of Union. I am still proud of the fact that I helped build it, and when I pass it with someone I tell them, ‘I helped build that.’
