The City of Alva is currently looking at a Water Tank Replacement Project at the Water Storage Tank Yard at Young Street and Thunderbird Rd. The City of Alva has two 500,000 gallon tanks at that location which are 60 years old, leaking, and have reached their useful life expectancy. The cost estimate to replace these three tanks is $1.4 million and the current anticipated time line for the completion is 1 year and 9 months with construction beginning in January 2018.
