The new valve station would consist of a new 5,400 square-foot, 34-foot tall, one story structure, which would house an electrical room, mechanical room, and valves. The project would also include installation of underground water utilities, valves, and other water-related appurtenances, asphalt and concrete paving, sidewalks, landscaping and street trees, and a new valve station garage. In addition, the project will construct a backup generator which includes a permanent diesel fueled generator on site for up to a 36-hour duration of emergency power generation.
