The Crossville City Council intends to move forward with reviewing a raw water study to help determine future water needs for the city of Crossville.
Greg Davenport of J.R. Wauford and Company gave a presentation during Tuesday’s work session and briefed council members on the study.
“The purpose of the Raw Water Study is to evaluate the existing high service water pumped, water sold, and growth and usage projections to determine timelines and alternatives related to the expansion of the available raw water capacity…” the report states.
Davenport said the city’s leakage rate in its system was around 20 percent, which is good for system the size of Crossville’s.
Councilman J.H. Graham III said the city has grown at a 30 percent rate three times over a period of 10 years.
