LIMA Williams Reservoir has benefited from recent heavy rains, city Assistant Utilities Director Mike Caprella reported to City Council on Monday.


With construction of the reservoir, the city added a pump station to take water from the Auglaize River; it did its job in recent days. The pump station can pump 100 million gallons of water a day. As high water came by in the river, the pump took it, and refilled the reservoir, Caprella said. Over a period of two weeks, the reservoir went from being low by 7 feet to topped off.


One inch of depth at the reservoir equals about 18 millions gallons of water. The pump station and new reservoir makes the community nearly drought-proof, Caprella said.
