KILLDEER — It was decided during the Killdeer City Commission meeting Monday that the iconic, blue-green landscape marker that is the elevated Killdeer water tower standing at the corner of Highway 200 and High Street will be deconstructed.

The commission previously heard community members’ pleas for the water tower’s continued presence, which marks the city’s skyline, but offered a unanimous vote Monday to tear it down, largely due to structural instability and extensive cost for maintenance.

A second water tank on the ground will be added, however, next to the city’s existing ground-dwelling water reserve tank.
