Heartland lake could provide millions of gallons of water a day
KIRKSVILLE, MO. —
Managers of the Allstate Consultants group were in Kirksville Wednesday evening meeting with stakeholders to discuss the East Locust Creek Reservoir Project.
The project is intended to provide a reservoir in Sullivan County capable of producing seven million gallons of raw water per day to residents in north central Missouri.
According to project manager Jason Vangalis, if the heartland area were to ever experience a serious drought, there may not be an adequate amount of water.
The ELCR project could change that.
Vangalis says the goal during Wednesday nights meeting was to get to know the Kirksville community and develop reasons to move forward with the project from an economic perspective.
“ So we get a chance to talk to commissioners one on one and employers one on one, but this is really is to bring people together and see how they interact and interplay.”
