Greenbrier Tower is getting a Makover.

The Greenbrier Tower is getting a makeover.  It has been twenty-six years since the last painting.  The Town of Leonardtown has contracted with K&K Painting to re-paint the Greenbrier Tower.  

The Town’s facility management team has begun to drain down the water tower and they will monitor the water pressure around Town.  They do expect pressure to go up while the tower is offline and then return to normal pressure once it is back online.  We expect this to take approximately 60 to 90 days.

Any residents with questions or concerns please contact the Town office at 301-475-9791 or email to

We appreciate your patience during the makeover and sincerely hope you enjoy the before and after results.
