A new addition to the Sioux Falls Skyline

Posted: Updated:

When you're out and about you might notice the Sioux Falls Skyline has changed.

Sunday the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System capped off its new water tower by putting the 3 million gallon bowl on top of the pedestal.

The tower will serve as a water storage facility for communities across the area, into parts of Iowa and Minnesota.

Troy Larson is the executive director of Lewis and Clark, he says this is a collaboration between his project and the City of Sioux Falls.  Both needed a 1.5 million gallon storage tower, so they put two in one.

A three million gallon bowl is the largest capacity tower made in the U.S. and this one is extra special.  Larson says, "this is the tallest at 190 feet tall, so it's really quite the distinction for the community, the area and the Lewis and Clark Project."

Larson says Lewis & Clark plans to start bringing water to its members in 2012.
