Document Description
The De Soto Tanks Project is a water storage project to provide additional local storage and increase operational effectiveness, reliability, and flexibility; system redundancy; and emergency supply to the West San Fernando Valley. The project would functionally replace the existing 3 MG De Soto Reservoir, with two buried, pre-stressed circular concrete storage tanks immediately north of the existing reservoir site. The combined storage capacity upon completion of the new storage tanks would be approximately 20 MG. See NOC for full project description.
