Invalid Portal removal denied
Title: Water Tower on Hwy 30
City: Cedar Rapids, IA
Portal was reported due to lack of safe pedestrian access. Closest point of access involves pulling off on the shoulder of a busy on ramp/limited access highway, exiting the vehicle, then climbing thru a ditch and up a hill to a chain link fence.
The water tower is city owned. Cedar Rapids has labeled all water towers as no public access/no trespassing. Other water towers in Cedar Rapids have been removed since the signage has been changed.
In addition, the access road visible behind the fence is on the property of a private business (papermill), where the property is fenced, gated, and has guarded access points.
