Work on the Highland Reservoir II has officially begun. This work is the second of our Water Reliability Plan projects to kick off in 2022, preceded by the Rising Main Rehabilitation Project, which kicked off in February. Work on the Highland Reservoir II includes replacement of the existing reservoir liner and cover and rehabilitation of both the pump station and rising main. We will also replace the existing chlorine injection system and complete an upgrade of the reservoir outlet structure.
This work is integral to the Water Reliability Plan as the Highland Reservoir II will be used as a temporary Clearwell while the new Clearwell is being constructed. Existing chlorine feed facilities must be upgraded to meet state regulatory requirements for chlorine treatment. The existing reservoir outlet structure also must be upgraded to accommodate the construction of the Highland Reservoir Pump Station, set to begin in mid-2022.
