Steubenville City Council is discussing the possible restoration of the water trough on Old Market Street.

The trough is overgrown with vines, needs to be re-pointed, and the stone needs to be cleaned as well.

Councilman Scott Dressel is hopeful in seeing the trough restored and would like to see it utilized again.

The Ohio Preservation Office will be brought in to help oversee the project and to make sure that the proper steps are followed in restoring it.
