Tustin Water Service is always looking to improve system reliability to ensure our customers are receiving quality water and to maximize water storage for emergency response. This requires planning for capital improvements.
Most recently, Rawlings Reservoir was replaced due to deterioration and age. The new reservoir was designed to current building standards and increased capacity from 4 million gallons to 6 million gallons.
SIMON RANCH RESERVOIR AND BOOSTER PUMP STATION REPLACEMENT
Simon Ranch Reservoir is located at the intersection of Outlook Lane and Valhalla Drive in North Tustin.
Planning efforts began in 2006 when an evaluation of the reservoir indicated that the facility’s useful life was coming to an end. Total project costs have been estimated at $9. 4 million and will be funded by proceeds of the 2013 Water Bond.
The project is in the design phase and construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2017.
EDINGER AVENUE WELL INSTALLATION
Tustin Water Services owns a small parcel at the intersection of Edinger Avenue and the 55 freeway. The well was drilled in 2013. Construction of the building and equipping of the pump is expected to be complete in December 2016.
