The Regional Water Authority has been trying to find a location for a water tank in west Derby for years.

The water tank, if approved, will serve about 13,000 customers, according to Regional Water, including Griffin Hospital.

The tank is needed to stabilize water pressure, improve fire flows, provide extra water storage, and to make more water available during emergencies, according to the company.
