10th Street Water System Upgrade Project
The City is planning improvements to its water system at the 10th Street Reservoir and Pump Station property located at the corner of 10th Street and C Avenue. This project includes removal of the water tank and replacement of the existing pump station.
The project is in the early design stage, and is expected to continue through fall 2019, with construction possibly starting in late 2019 and continuing through summer 2020.
Public meetings are expected to be held with neighbors to solicit feedback on design and architectural aspects of the new pump station in spring and summer 2019.
In 2018, the City completed an update to its 2001 Water System Master Plan (2018 Plan). The 2018 Plan has identified a number of improvements, including modifications to its storage, pumping and distribution systems. Some of these improvements include:
- Abandoning and removing the 10th Street Reservoir, an existing 1925-era, 0.5 million gallon steel water storage tank. The work also includes removal of the foundation, associated piping, and replacement of the existing 700 gallon per minute pump station.
- Designing and constructing a new connection from the water main at 9th Street and B Avenue, to the new pump station.
- Designing, permitting and building a new water pump station on the property, and demolishing the existing pump station. The new pump station will be built to modern seismic resiliency standards.
- Designing and constructing approximately 2,400 feet of new water pipelines to improve the pump station hydraulics and provide a new source of water to the pump station in place of the water tank.
January 2, 2019 – Survey and Field Work at the 10th Street Reservoir and Pump Station Site
Neighbors may see design survey and geotechnical drilling at and near the reservoir site beginning this month. You may also notice tags placed on some trees along the street and at the reservoir property. These tags are used to identify the trees and should remain until the project is completed. These tags do not mean the trees are planned to be trimmed or removed. Thank you for your assistance.
January 18, 2019 – Tree Survey Beginning
Neighbors may see a consulting arborist conducting a tree survey of all existing trees within right-of-way within the project area and on the reservoir property.
