Tank project approved by North Huntingdon officials
North Huntington commissioners unanimously approved a request by the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County to build a 1.5-million gallon water-storage tank at the end of Virginia Avenue in the Ardara section. Authority officials need to install the new $1.2 million tank before work can begin to refurbish the existing 5-million gallon storage tank on the site, which will cost about $500,000. Work is expected to begin in late summer and be completed in the spring.
