Document Description
The project will maintain potable water storage and delivery in the City of Manhattan Beach by removing the degraded 60+ year old Peck Reservoir, pumps, and ancillary facilities. Existing structures will be replaced with a new 8 million gallon reservoir, 925 square foot operations building, 1,950 square foot pump station control building, water treatment system, and related ancillary facilities. The new reservoir structure will be sited in approximately the same footprint as the existing reservoir and the elevation of the roof of the replacement reservoir will be approximately 1 foot higher than existing. Related ancillary facilities will include: an enclosed diesel standby generator, a ground-level transformer, underground mainline piping and access vaults. Construction for the new reservoir will require removal of the on-site groundcover, shrubs and trees. Replacement landscaping will include native southern California plants and shrubs with low water requirements. The perimeter of the site will be secured with a variable height metal picket fence and security access gates on the northeast, southeast and southwest corners. Onsite service roads will be constructed on the east and south sides, and around the perimeter of the new reservoir at the same elevation as existing.
