Document Description
The East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) proposes to prepare a project level EIR for the replacement of Summit Reservoir and the Woods and Shasta Pumping Plants located at 416 Spruce Street in the city of Berkeley. The project involves demolition of the existing 37 million gallon (MG) open-cut reservoir (constructed in 1891) and appurtenances (including the roof system, roof features, and concrete lining) and the Woods and Shasta Pumping Plants located below the southwestern reservoir embankment. New construction includes a new 3.5 to 5 MG partially buried concrete tank, replacement pumping plants and related appurtenances in one structure adjacent to the existing location, and a new Summit regulator/rate control station within the pumping plant structure to access storage from the existing Woods Reservoir located ~1 mile to the east. The entire reservoir bowl will be regraded and landscaped with a mixture of drought-tolerant trees, grasses and shrubs.
