Sylvania, Monroe Seek Backup Water Source

(Sylvania, OH) Sylvania leaders are flushing out the details of a backup water plan. 

The Toledo Area Water Authority still remains the first choice, but Sylvania's mayor is insisting on a back-up water source in case there's ever another toxic Toledo water crisis. He's willing to possibly pump that water all the way from Lake Huron, a pricey proposition for a pipeline that could cost as much as $100 million. 

Sylvania City Council this week voted to fund one-third of a 50-thousand dollar study to draw up plans. 

Monroe, Michigan will fund the rest of that plan, because city officials there, too, need a back-up water source.
