The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to authorize the acquisition of the Page Road water pumping station off Westover Drive from Pittsylvania County.
The purchase will allow the City to restore the water pumping station to provide the additional water capacity needed at the Southern Virginia Megasite at Berry Hill. The pumping station also could serve other potential needs in Pittsylvania County.
The pumping station, which is located beside the City's Moorefield Bridge Road water tank near Westover Drive, has been dormant since 2010, but once restored can provide up to one million gallons of water per day.
The megasite off Berry Hill Road was designed with a daily water capacity of seven million gallons per day. Up to six million gallons per day will be provided through a separate service from the City of Eden, N.C. Restoration of the Page Road pumping station will bridge the gap.
The purchase price is $64,270.
In other matters Tuesday night, the City Council voted to:
The City Council also held a first reading on an ordinance authorizing the issuance of bonds. A first reading is an introductory step required by City Code. The City Council will vote on this matter at its next meeting.
