The non-profit group collecting funds for the project told WKBW that funding has slowed because of COVID-19.

"It's been a challenging time for many non profits. Unfortunately we canceled our fall fundraiser because we can't have large gatherings. The tourism grant we planned to apply for is on hold indefinitely."

The group is still trying to collect funds for the project from area businesses and by selling t-shirts on eBay. T-shirts are on sale for $25 per shirt.

If want to make a donation to the project, you can via the Hamburger Water Tower Facebook page.
