Jamestown to get new water storage tank along KY 55

The city of Jamestown recently received $329,120 in funding from the state’s Cleaner Water Program to go toward a new 300,000 gallon water storage tank to be constructed along KY-55.

Officials say the new tank will replace two aging water tanks, the Clifty Creek and Maynard tanks, both built in the 1980’s.

Due to increased usage in this area of the distribution system, more capacity is needed to meet these demands. Both the Clifty Creek and Maynard tanks are currently in need of repair.

The total project cost for the new storage tank is just over $1.1 million.

The Lake Cumberland Area Development District submitted the funding request to the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.
