Document Description
UC Davis proposes to remove existing Domestic Water Tower Number 2 located west of Highway 113 and to construct a new ground-level water tank to expand the current domestic water supply and fire flow capacity on campus lands west of Highway 113. The existing 100,000 gallon water tower is located south of Brooks Road on the west campus at UC Davis. The water tower is approximately 150 feet tall with an exterior lead-based paint coating system that is badly corroding. Replacing the water tower with a new 300,000-gallon ground tank would be more cost-effective than recoating the existing water tower and also, would improve the domestic water system on the west campus. The demolition would be performed by cutting two of the four legs and pulling the tower over in a southerly direction to an agricultural field. A lead consultant would collect soil samples before and after demolition of the water tower and would conduct any required lead remediation of soils affected by the tower demolition.
