Document Description
Mission Springs Water District (MSWD or District) is proposing to develop a second reservoir at the exiting Vista Reservoir site. The existing Vista Reservoir site is approximately 1.23 acres and is surrounded by mountain terrain consisting of mild to steep slopes and an earthen driveway up to the existing 300,000-gallon reservoir pad at 1,609 feet in elevation. The existing reservoir is connected to two different pressure zones via a 10-inch waterline and a hydropneumatic station with a 4-inch waterline. The proposed Vista Reservoir No. 2 Project includes a new 300,000-gallon reservoir approximately 30 feet northwest of the existing reservoir. Ultimately the installation of the new 300,000-gallon reservoir at the Vista Reservoir site will require installation of the following: retaining walls and hillside slope stabilization, stormwater management BMPs, installation of a new access road, relocation of the existing hydropneumatic station and the electrical cabinet, grading, wrought iron and chain link fence, and a new 300,000-gallon welded steel water storage reservoir and related piping. Design and construction of the Project is anticipated to be completed in approximately 6 months. Construction is anticipated to start in the third quarter of 2021.
