The Claremont Reservoir is closer to making necessary improvements. The City’s public works department is seeking a $20,000 state grant to make needed improvements including replacing the fence around Dole Reservoir.
The city council will vote Wednesday night to apply for the grant and send in the application before the November 1st deadline, if voted in favor to move forward. If the grant is given to Claremont the work would begin as early as March and the city would add an additional $5,000 to the grant.
The money would also be used to make repairs and install windows and doors to the aging brick building at the site as well as a digital water meter. The reservoir is the site where more than 40 million gallons of water is housed from the white water reservoir for treatment for the city’s water supply.
