Document Description
The project will consist of removal of the existing drinking water reservoir (bolted steel tank) and installing a new tank within the same location and footprint. The existing tank has a diameter of 38 feet, with a height of 24 feet. The replacement tank will measure 47 feet in diameter, 32 feet tall. The center point of the new tank will align with the existing tank, increasing the overall diameter of nine feet. The existing tank is approximately 40 years old and is beyond repair, requiring replacement. This asset provides drinking water and fire protection to a residential community.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15302 (a.) Replacement and Reconstruction
Reasons for Exemption
The reservoir replacement is exempt from CEQA because the project is a replacement of an existing facility. The replacement facility will only have a negligible increase in capacity relative to the existing footprint. The slight increase will serve the existing population. The project will not require any major site grading and the construction will only take place on the previously graded pad.
