The Blue Ridge Tank Replacement Project is complete, tripling the water storage available north of Boulder Creek, announced San Lorenzo Valley Water District.
The project’s completion marks four months of work to replace an aging redwood water tank.
The new tank, constructed of bolted steel, stands at more than 32 feet fall and can hold 120,000 gallons of water, greatly increasing the amount of water available for firefighting purposes. It’s the first of six tank projects to be completed within the Water District.
In June, the District was awarded a $4.5 million grant through the Department of Water Resources’ Urban Community Drought Relief Grant Program. The Blue Ridge Tank project cost was $887,745.
The Blue Ridge Tank is one of many Capital Improvement Projects being undertaken by the District to enhance its infrastructure, create reliable water sources for customers and improve support for firefighting.
