At the March 19, 2018, City Council meeting, City Staff proposed to the Council to take a step back from our in-house search for a water tower site and reconnect with S.E.H. Engineering to discuss a more ‘engineering-based’ look at where to find a potential location for a water tower (and possibly a location that would be large enough for a future water treatment plant) in the southwest part of Minnetrista. This has since been approved and the city is proceeding.
