Why is it taking so long to activate the new H2GO water tower in Leland?

Jason Gonzales

UPDATE: The water tower went into service in December 2010. Here’s a link to an updated story about the tower.

The construction on the H2GO water tower near Atkinson Trail in Leland is complete and is awaiting approval on the state, Director of H2GO Bob Jones said.

The original hold up was getting power to the site, he said, and the state will hopefully approve the work soon.

“I can’t tell exactly when the state will do it with it being the holiday season,” Jones said in December 2010.

Jones estimated the job has taken a little over a year since the final contract was issued and would have been built faster if H2GO had paid more money for the work.

He said, however, that the $2.2 million for the elevated tank and the $1.1 million to build a ground storage tank was paid for by H2GO without raising customer fees.
