Description of Project
Removal of the Silver Lake and Ivanhoe Reservoirs from potable water supply service and construction of two underground reservoirs and a large-diameter pipeline located at Headworks property, replacing the operational function of Silver Lake and Ivanhoe. The replacement storage will be below grade and consists of two water storage facilities, the Headworks East Reservoir and the Headworks West Reservoir. In order to take advantage of the renewable energy source developed by the flowing water, a four-megawatt hydroelectric plant will be built on site to generate power. After the completion of these projects the ecosystem will be developed to establish environmental habitats and recreational facilities for community use.
