The purpose of the proposed project is to replace and increase the capacity of the existing water reservoir facility to provide enhanced fire flow and protect public safety in the 3891 pressure zone area. The existing steel reservoir is a 30,000 gallon "pass through" storage tank that is outdated and structurally unsound. The pressure zone is currently primarily provided water through a pressure reducing station from the Upper Ridge Tank and booster pumps from the Homestead Tank.
