Document Description
The proposed project consists of replacing the existing Cypress Street Reservoir with a larger capacity reservoir, and developing a water treatment facility to utilize the City's existing Well No. 5. The proposed water facilities would serve Zone I of the City of Lomita (portion of Lomita northerly of Pacific Coast Highway), and would provide a backup source to the water service zones south of Pacific Coast Highway. The existing Cypress Street Reservoir, which is operated by the City of Lomita's Water System, has been in continuous use as a reservoir since about 1929. This reservoir is a concrete-style, rectangular tank constructed in two parts with a total capacity of about 1,000,000 gallons. The operational capacity of the reservoir was reduced to about 265,000 gallons in 1970, due to decreasing structural integrity. The proposed project would demolish the existing reservoir and replace it with an approximately 5-million gallon concrete tank reservoir.
