6/25/2020 - City Of Sedalia Offers Program to Property Owners to Fill Old and Abandoned Cisterns at No Cost
In recent weeks, the City of Sedalia has received calls from neighbors and property owners concerned about exposed holes in their or neighboring lots that could pose a safety hazard for children and pets. The majority of these holes have been identified as being formed by settlement or the loss of a cap or top from old and abandoned cisterns.
Many new homeowners are unaware their property contains an abandoned cistern until they discover a hole has formed in a side or back yard allowing the homeowner to see down into the underground pit or tank. When cisterns are no longer used, the City has a program to fill the cistern with rock at no cost to the property owner to keep the cistern from becoming a safety hazard. The City of Sedalia encourages residents to walk their property to see if there might be a cistern that could be filled and to contact the Public Works Department to arrange for filling of any cisterns found.
