Authority builds new water tanks in Harvest

Two new two million-gallon water tanks that will go on line this summer and a new water treatment plant that will be completed in April 2003 are all part of a $19.5 million construction project currently under way by the Harvest-Monrovia Water Authority.
In addition to the construction of the two water tanks and water treatment plant, more than 15 miles of new water mains were installed in May and another 17 miles of water mains are now being installed and will be completed next June.
The two water tanks, one that will go on-line in July and located northwest of the Wall-Triana Highway and Nick Davis Road intersection, and the other, scheduled to go on-line in August and located next to the Harvest Post Office on Wall-Triana Highway, are the largest water tanks in northwest Madison County.
According to Roger Raby, of Harvest-Monrovia Water Authority, construction of the 10-million gallon per day water treatment plant is 65 percent complete. Raby said the plant is scheduled to go on-line next April.
"Water from two wells will supply the new plant and two other wells that we currently get water from will continue to be used with water from those two wells being treated on-site with chlorine," Raby said.
Construction of the water treatment plant began in March 2001. Raby said Harvest-Monrovia Water Authority serves more than 27,000 people with approximately 8,800 meters installed throughout the area.
"We are adding as many as 500 new meters a year as the area grows. This new water treatment plant, along with the two new tanks and the water mains, will keep us up-to-date with demand for the next 10 years."
Raby said the new water tanks would be painted light gray and light blue.
