CLEARFIELD, Utah (AP) -- Residents of an upscale Clearfield neighborhood are angry over a proposal that would put a 100 million-gallon water tank in their midst.

The Weber Basin Water Conservancy District plans to build the tank in the Autumn Ridge subdivision.

Residents say a huge steel water tank would be an eyesore.

Conservancy district manager Tage Flint says residents are misinformed. He says the conservancy's plans call for an underground, concrete tank that couldn't be seen.

He says the land on top would be unsuitable for building and would be preserved as opens space.

Flint says the tank is necessary for Davis County's future water needs. He says a finding location for the tank now is important because the county is growing so fast.
