Document Description
The Town of Hillsborough operates and maintains a complex water distribution system to serve its residents and water users. One of the Town's water storage facilities, the Vista Water Tank and pump station, is located behind 1037 Black Mountain Road. Facilities at the approximately 0.45-acre site include on in-service steel water tank, one out-of-service wood water tank, an enclosed pump station and control house with two, 40-horsepower electric pumps, water pipelines and other minor. The site provides 350,000 gallons of total water storage capacity. The project site is not currently subject to listing under Section 65962.5 of the Government Code (the Cortese list). The existing tanks at the site were installed prior to 1965 and do not meet current seismic design standards.
