CLEVELAND, Fla. — Behind a large water storage tank draped with a huge American flag, several dozen local politicians, regional water agency staffers and engineers gathered Thursday to celebrate the completion of a $20 million pipeline across the Peace River.
The 12-mile transmission line will allow the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority and Punta Gorda Utilities to ship up to six million gallons per day to each other, either to meet local or regional demands or provide water in case of emergency plant shutdowns.
