Tenney Tank Replacement Project, November 22, 2017
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
It is proposed to replace the original three redwood Tenney tanks with two steel tanks designed to current seismic criteria from the American Society of Civil Engineers-7 (ASCE-7) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA). This requires a volume to allow for "sloshing" of water in the tank during a seismic event. The operating volumes will be 53,000 and 65,000 gallons. The tanks would be positioned to be roughly the same foot print and original water level elevation to maintain system pressure and fire flow capacity. The two tanks would be installed in a phased approach by the same contractor. Projected installation date is tentatively set for late 2018. A new 4'x8' building wooden shed (replacing the existing shed) will be constructed to house the chlorine pump and low wattage radio communications equipment.
