- City of Watsonville - Zone 2 Water Reservoir and Booster Pump Station Modification Project
- The City’s Proposed Project includes the construction and operation of a new up to 3 million-gallon (MG) 36.5-foot high and up to 121-foot diameter concrete above ground water storage tank at the site of the Watsonville Municipal Airport. The new tank will be sited next and adjacent to the City’s existing 3 (MG) water storage tank and will provide the necessary back-up and emergency storage in the event of a catastrophic event such as an earthquake, drought or failure of the existing tank. The City’s existing approximately 32-foot high 150-foot diameter steel tank is nearing the end of its useful life and based on 2014 and 2019 inspections is suffering from internal corrosion. As a result, the existing storage tank will soon need to be rehabilitated and/or replaced and the City cannot risk taking the existing tank out of service until a/the new tank is constructed.
