Syracuse City is investing in its water system. We are upsizing both the culinary water tank and the secondary water tank. The culinary water tank will be upsized to a three-million-gallon tank and its current one-million-gallon tank will be converted into a secondary water tank. This improvement will help as Syracuse City continues to grow and allow everyone to gain access to water they need.
The project will be paid for by impact fees paid by new businesses and by new home developers and from a portion of the utilities bill. 60% will come from the impact fees with 40% coming from the water bill. The project is projected to finish in 2020. The price is estimated between 5 million and 5.5 million dollars to complete.
