INDICE DE GALERIAS
LE MARS, Iowa (AP) — Officials in Le Mars are scrambling to change plans for a planned 140-foot-tall water tower after the Federal Aviation Administration ruled the structure would obstruct flights to the city's airport.
The Le Mars Daily Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/16hKsa7 ) the city must redesign its plans for a 1 million gallon water tower after the FAA's ruling that any tower higher than 86 feed would be a hazard.
The city has bought 2.34 acre of land for the tower and booster station in southwest Le Mars.
City Administrator Scott Langel says officials believe that's the best spot for a tower, but something will need to change if the FAA sticks by its decision.
Langel says McClure Engineering, of Fort Dodge, already is reviewing the location and design of the tower.
