Hillcrest Ground Storage and Pump Station Improvements

For nearly 100 years, water has been pumped into Hillcrest Ground Storage from the Riverside Water Treatment Plant to be used by residents and businesses in the area. This project will replace the nearly 100-year-old facility with 2 new, smaller tanks, providing better system control and efficiency, as well as improving water quality in the area.

Projected Start/End Dates

Construction began in June 2017. Phase I of the project (first tank) will be complete in June 2018, with the entire project expected to be complete in January 2019.

Projected Cost

Approximately $11 million
