Document Description
The San Lorenzo Valley Water District (SLVWD) would be replacing the existing redwood 40,000-gallon Blue Ridge Tank with a new 160,000-gallon tank providing 120,000-gallons of effective storage located in the community of Boulder Creek. The existing tank is currently undersized and leaking. The proposed project would involve demolition and removal of the existing Blue Ridge Tank, electrical panel, and utility connections. Site preparation would involve grading and removal of nineteen mature trees (8 redwoods, 2 oaks, 8 fir and 1 madrone) to accommodate the larger replacement tank. The new 160,000-gallon tank would be craned into location. The utility and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system would be connected to the new tank, after which the tank would be placed into service
