The City of Lincoln is working to construct another key piece of infrastructure to ensure the City has adequate water supplies. The Tank #3 at Catta Verdera North Project will provide the City with an additional 10-million gallons of treated water storage to meet anticipated water demands.
This projecs involves construction of a 240 -ft diameter by 35 -ft tall pre-stressed concrete water reservoir to store treated water delivered to the City from PCWA. The tank will be built on City owned land in the vicinity of Sierra College Boulevard and Twelve Bridges Drive.
Benefits of the Project include:
- More capacity to store water for the City’s current and future needs.
- Provide operational flexibility and redundancy to the overall water system.
- Reduce the City’s dependence on ground water sources.
The overall project includes:
- Connecting to the existing system at the future 30-inch pipeline and metering station (see Lincoln Penryn Phase III Pipeline and Metering Station Project).
- A 1,000-foot 16-inch diameter pipeline.
- A 5,500-ft 36-inch diameter pipeline.
- Electrical instrumentation and controls.
- An option to perform grading for a future second tank.
- Use dirt generated from the tank site to fill the old City Pond Site and create eight residential lots for the adjacent neighborhood.
The City’s goals during construction include:
- Keep neighbors and the community informed throughout construction.
- Provide advanced notice of utility work in local streets.
Design of the Tank #3 Project will begin in January 2016 and construction is anticipated to begin this summer with completion expected by summer of 2017.
Costs & Funding
Funding for the tank project is from the Water PFE - Fund #715, the Twelve Bridges AD 95-1 and the Lincoln Crossing CFD. The total project cost is approximately $11.48M.
