Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Bass Lake Water Company proposes to install a circular 400,000-gallon above ground storage tank over some of the demolished footprint of their old square 425,000-gallon partially below ground reservoir. The new tank footprint will extend less than 2,500-square feet beyond the old reservoir footprint. The old 425,000-gallon reservoir roof failed with recent winter storms, causing the need to install a replacement tank. Five hundred thirty feet of piping .less than 10-inches in width , will be installed to connect the new tank to the old system . The Project will provide and help maintain drinking water and fire services at previous levels.
