The Jefferson County Water and Sewer District is adjusting the schedule for demolition of the Smithfield water storage tank.

The date of the demolition will be pushed back at least 3 months.

The demolition of the 100,000-gallon tank was scheduled for November, but Maguire Iron, Inc. out of Sioux Falls, S.D. that bid $1.6 million for the project requested the delay because of the death of one of its workers on a similar project.
