Document Description
The City of American Canyon proposes to construct up to four water tanks at two new water tank sites (1B and 2A) to provide improved potable and reclaimed water service for existing and future development in the east portion of the City of American Canyon. Up to three water tanks (two potable and one reclaimed) are proposed for site 1B and 335 feet above MSL at site 2A. The water tanks would be constructed at an elevation of approximately 195 feet above mean sea level (MSL) at site 1B and 335 feet above MSL at site 2A. Site 1B would provide additional water storage for the city's main pressure zone and Site 2A would provide storage for the La Vigne high-pressure zone. The water tanks proposed for site 1B include up to two 2.6 million gallons per day (mgd) welded steel potable water tanks and a 2.0 mgd welded steel reclaimed water tank. One 2.0 mgd welded steel potable water tank is proposed for site 2A.
