Water tower site bought from Milford schools

MIAMI TOWNSHIP - Clermont County commissioners approved a proposal Wednesday to purchase an acre from the Milford Exempted Village School District.

The land, along Loveland-Miamiville Road near a new elementary school, is the approved site for a 2-million-gallon, 164-foot water tower.

One of nine set to go up in the county over the next 15 years, the tower is part of an overall plan to help meet the rising demands for water as the county's population continues to grow.

The towers help to boost water pressure, enhance fire protection and provide storage at times when water demand is highest.

The county proposes to buy the site for $46,000

The project, expected to cost about $2.5 million, will take about two years.
