Sunshine and 74 degrees is the forecast for the Bangor Water District's Spring Standpipe Tour. 

Spring is definitely blooming finally in Bangor and the Thomas Hill Standpipe is going to be a great place to take it all in. The Standpipe Tour is set for Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Bangor Water District opens the Thomas Hill Standpipe four times a year and although I have never done the spring tour I can imaging the colors from all the trees in bloom and the spring green of the leaves is a beautiful and unique thing to see..

For those who have never enjoyed one of these tours, get ready because the views aren’t the only breathtaking aspect of the experience. I am speaking of course of the 100 steps to get to the promenade deck. Also anyone planning on a visit should know that, designed in 1897, the standpipe is not handicapped accessible.

To reach the tour location, travel on Thomas Hill Road to the standpipe will be one-way from Highland Avenue; parking is limited in the immediate area of the standpipe.
