Funding awarded for city’s multi-million dollar water tank replacement project

NORWICH – The City of Norwich has secured funding for a multi-million dollar project that will replace the city’s worn steel water tank with a new one that city officials say will last for the next 100 years.



U.S. Representative Richard Hanna announced on Tuesday a $1.85 million federal loan for the City of Norwich to upgrade its deteriorating water storage tank on Wheeler Avenue. The loan was made available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program.

The city also received a $750,000 grant from Rural Development. Funds will be used to demolish the existing water storage tank and valve vault and replace it with a new, pre-stressed concrete water tank and control valve vault, a new storm water detention basin, and an access drive from Wheeler Avenue to the new tank.
