RICHMOND -- The city is talking about building a municipal drinking water tank far bigger than the two it currently has.
City Manager Marlowe Adkins says Richmond needs a 2 million gallon water tank, and is going to have to find the $3.5 million to $4 million to fund it.
The Herald Journal of Logan reports Friday that discussions have been going on for about three years, and Adkins hopes work can begin this year.
The tank would be built at the mouth of Cherry Creek Canyon, and City Councilman Brad Jensen says it's likely that water rates will rise to pay for it.
Adkins says that along with the tank, the city will need a chlorination facility and new pipelines.
Richmond currently has two tanks holding 5,000 gallons each.
