Vermont town and college to improve water system

Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The town of Bennington and Southern Vermont College will work together on a plan to improve the water system in parts of the community.

On Tuesday, Bennington voters approved a $3 million water bond to help pay for the project.

The town and college will build a 750,000-gallon water tank and a pump station to solve water pressure issues. The state had told the town the issue had to be resolved by 2018.

The Bennington Banner reports the water will be pumped across the college campus to the tank where it would be stored for times when there is high demand, such as during a fire.

The college would become a customer of the water system.
