Fort Pierre held public hearing Monday involving water storage tank

FORT PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- A public hearing was held Monday in Fort Pierre for residents to give their input on a proposed water storage tank under consideration by the Fort Pierre City Council.  After a repeat presentation on the project by engineering firm Bartlett and West, Council member Larry Cronin continued his opposition.

Councilman Todd Bernhard says changing the project now could cost the city millions of dollars.

Councilman Greg Kenzy read from a report done by Interstate Engineering that the city has water capacity but needs more water coming into the system.

There was no public comment on the water tank proposal and the Council took no action regarding the project’s future.
