Senate Bill 1451 was introduced in February of 2017.  The topic just came to the attention of the Water Utility Council.  This bill creates the Small Wireless Facilities Deployment Act.  It will prohibit a municipality from regulating or charging for the collocation of small wireless facilities (antennae) on water towers.  This will open up all water towers to free use by cell companies for the location of their antennae.


The Water Utility Council requests that all municipalities contact their legislators and object to this bill.  The WUC will continue monitoring the progress of the bill and keep our members informed.
