Document Description
To help ensure the quality, reliability, and stability of the City of Los Angeles drinking water supply, including compliance with updated US EPA water quality standards, LADWP proposes to replace the uncovered Elysian Reservoir with two concrete tanks, which would be sited within the existing reservoir and buried. These tanks would provide an equal amount of potable water storage (55 million gallons [MG]) as is available in the existing reservoir. The area atop the tanks would be developed for recreation uses. A shallow wildlife pond no less than 0.5 acre would also be created at the northern end of the project site, but not atop the tanks. After completion of project construction, the site would be developed according to a program established by the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and parks and opened to the public as part of Elysian Park.
