Project Description

PID’s maintenance schedule calls for rehabilitating three of the district's water storage tanks, C, D and E. Maintenance rehab includes cleaning and painting each tank, inside and out, and making necessary structural repairs.

In December 2017, consultants completed a condition assessment to rank the maintenance priority of each tank. The Board of Directors shall consider funding one tank rehab per year, starting with the tank in the worst condition.

 PROJECT was delayed as a result of the 2018 Camp Fire and the damage to our largest reservoir in town (see Reservoir B Project). Reservoir B construction was completed in January of 2024.

PID's board considered these alternatives:

There are no alternatives. Steel tanks must be maintained and relined to prevent corrosion and future damage. This project was originally planned for 2018/2019 but due to the Camp Fire and damage to an upper reservoir, the relining could not be completed until the completion of the upper reservoir in early 2024.


Benefits to PID and its Customers

PID’s storage tanks will continue to function well and their useful life will be extended.
