ALBANY, GA (WALB) - City leaders say there is still a lot of planning to be done before a new water tower in North West Albany can be built.
The elevated storage tank has been in the works to become a permanent solution for water pressure issues in the area. If a loan is approved by city commission to move forward, it will be built where Dawson Road and the bypass meet.
Officials say they're discussing options with Lee County leaders to help finance the project."Some long processes to go through and some EPD regulations, but we developed a core group to look at all the aspects of investing this money," said Jimmy Norman, Director of Utility Operations.
Temporary valves have been installed to help with the water pressure issues.The 2.2 million dollar project will soon go before the City Commission for approval.
