Plans Made For Big Water Tank The Clearfield Municipal Authority made plans this morning to hold a special meeting to authorize bids for a one million gallon water storage plant at Hillsdale as soon as specifications are ready. The new tank will be erected on the site of the present temporary tank installed last fall to correct a low water pressure situation at Hillsdale and other sections of the community caused by the closing of one of the Authority's water supplies, the Moose Creek Reservoir. Cost of the million gallon tank will be borne by the Common- wealth of Pennsylvania under an agreement between the State Highway Department and Au- thority officials. The contract itself, in which the Commonwealth agrees to reimburse the Authority for cer- tain corrections already made to the system and to meet the cost of the new storage tank, was officially accepted by the Authority as it met in regular session this morning.
