The proposed project would consist of the construction of an 850,000-gallon above-ground welded steel water supply reservoir and a future pump station, as well as a 15-foot-wide perimeter access strip encircling the water reservoir, an underground biofiltration vault with rock-armored outfall, and landscaping to filter views of the reservoir. In addition, the project would include the replacement of two existing pumps currently in use at the East Dunne Booster Station at 2375 East Dunne Avenue with larger electric pumps.
