[ARCHIVED] City of Sanger to Host Groundbreaking

750,000 Gallon Water Tank

The City of Sanger will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for its new 750,000-gallon water storage tank on Wednesday, June 26 at 9:30am. The ceremony will be held on the Southwest corner of Church and J Street (North of the Sanger Eagles club house) the community, and general public are welcome to attend.

Sanger’s much-needed new water tank will be partially funded by the EDA. The City will receive $1,237,500 from the EDA’s highly competitive Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Program to purchase and install the new system.

The new water tank will support and supplement two 100-year old tanks; allowing for increased water service throughout the City and reducing stress on the older tanks. By increasing water capacity, local businesses will be able to expand and the project will also benefit the entire community by providing a more reliable source of clean water.
The tank was made possible thanks to a joint effort and continued support by the City Council, City Staff, Yamabe) on Wednesday, June 26 at 9:30 a.m., and Horn and EDA officials. Most recently, Senator Melissa Hurtado in conjunction with State Officials, secured $3 million dollars for the City of Sanger to complete the water tank project and build a new municipal water well. The $3 million dollars is part of Senator Hurtado’s $15 million dollar investment of one time general fund dollars to address drinking water issues. The new tank is scheduled to be completed in early 2020.

The EDA is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The purpose of EDA funding is to promote innovation, economic growth, and prepare American regions for success.
