Document Description
The De Soto Tanks Project is a water storage project that is being proposed by the LA Department of Water and Power. The project would functionally replace the existing 3-million gallon De Soto Reservoir, located at 11200 De Soto Ave, with two buried, pre-stressed circular concrete storage tanks immediately north of the existing reservoir site. The combined operating storage capacity upon completion of the new storage tanks would be approx 20 MG. These tanks would provide additional local storage to increase operational effectiveness, reliability, and flexibility; system redundancy; and emergency supply to the West San Fernando Valley.
