KANNAPOLIS – The City’s newest water tank is under construction off N.C. 3 near Odell School Road. The tank will hold 500,000 gallons of water and is 143 feet tall.

The water tank will increase water pressure to homes, businesses and fire hydrants for the entire area west of Lake Howell, Jim Johnson Road and east of the Mecklenburg/Cabarrus County border up to N.C. 3.

This area is the fastest growing segment of the city. The tank is expected to be operational this June.
