The Hell Hole Domestic Water System (HHWS) and storage Tank were constructed to provide water for domestic use and fire protection for the cabins and dormitory at Hell Hole Reservoir.

The proposed new tank would be approximately 20-feet in inner diameter, 24-feet in height and have the same capacity as the existing tank.
