Press Release

Chairman of the Authority and Mayor of Hobart, Jeff Allen, shared “The City of Hobart for several years has been involved in efforts to improve the City’s water system. The City relies on Foss Reservoir for its drinking water, but also wants to enhance its own ability to treat and store water from Rocky Lake in order to have a supplemental water supply for peak demand periods and to have a back-up supply of water in the event that its primary water supply is unavailable. The City of Hobart appreciates the OWRB’s assistance in financing this critical infrastructure for the citizens of Hobart.”
