[ARCHIVED] Environmental review completed for proposed Storm Lake water tower


  The purpose of this project is to make improvements to the drinking water storage facilities to enhance their reliability, increase capacity and water pressures, and to safely and reliably operate the City of Storm Lake’s drinking water system for the next 20 years. 
  The 1.75 million gallon elevated tank will not significantly affect the area’s land use or population patterns, and will not conflict with local, state or federal land use policies, and will not negatively impact wildlife habitat – given that any tree cutting takes place from October through March to avoid any potential impact on endangered bats.
  No historic properties will be adversely, and the proposed project will not adversely affect air quality, the review concludes.
  “It has been determined that the proposed action will result in no significant impacts to the surrounding environment. This determination is based on a careful review of the engineering report, the environmental assessment and other supporting data,” according to DNR Environmental Specialist Nicole Osborn.  
  Those documents are available for review in the DNR’s Des Moines office. Persons disagreeing with the environmental decision may submit comments to the department within 30 days by email at or by phone at 515-321-7601.
