New water tank for Northwest Albany on the way

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The city may soon build a new water tank to make sure new developments in northwest Albany have proper water pressure.

Tuesday, city commissioners voted to submit a loan application to the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority.

City leaders haven't decided for sure whether to build the one million gallon tank at the end of Kensington Court, but they want to have the financing ready in case they do.

" We're looking at pressures and flows for the Northwest Albany system and making sure that we have the kind of service that we need for those customers," Tom Berry, Interim City Manager.

Commissioners don't have a figure yet on how much the water tank would cost.

They'll likely decide whether to build it in the next six months.
