SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - The plan for a new water tower southeast of springfield is moving forward.. Even though it is unwelcome to some living nearby.
Many homeowners are unhappy with city utilities proposal to build the one million gallon water tower near highway 65 and Evans road.
CU says growth in that area has put a major strain on water pressure.
Neighbors say while they understand the need for one, they think that C-U has other options than their back yards.
"I think everybody understands that there is a need for this, for the water pressure issues and that sort of thing, but it just seems like there could be a more appropriate place for it that's not that far away," said conerned resident Becky White.
"We're not giving up yet. We are talking with all the neighbors and we're not completely out about getting a lawyer at this point," said Michelle Enno, another concerned neighbor. "We feel like we've exhausted everything else and that would probably be our final straw."
