A potentially dangerous tower is almost down in Rantoul. Crews are on the former Chanute Air Force Base demolishing the old water tower.
Lead paint inside is flaking off posing a hazard to the environment. One more still needs to be taken down. Another will stay intact and be refurbished. Crews should be done by the end of the week.
