Document Description
SWRCB, as the responsible agency, will be issuing a water supply permit. The San Jose Water Company proposed project include construction of a 1.0 million gallon welded steel water storage tank which is 38'-3" tall with a 76'-0 inside tank diameter. A 16 inch diameter water transmission pipeline of ductile iron 3,260 feet in length will convey water from the tank to distribution tie-in point on Almaden Road. Project construction included a 12" hydrodynamic mixing system for blending water within the tank, and a 12" diameter standard 1/8" thick steel overflow pipe will be connected to the side of the tank at 33'-0" above the floor. Level transducers are used to monitor height of the water within the tank, and tank level information will be sent to the SCADA system using by radio. The tank will be surrounded with 575 feet of 7 foot tall chain-link fence. An on-site irrigation system will be installed to include a 200-gallon tank (36" tall, 55" wide tank) and a 1 HP irrigation pump. Access to the tank includes construction of a 14-oot wide access road from the canal road to the tank approx. 615' in length, and two pipe/vehicular bridges; the Alamitos Creek Bridge will be 186' long, and the Almaden-Calero Canal Bridge will be 30' in length.
