South Reservoir, Castro Valley
South Reservoir, Castro Valley

EBMUD is planning to replace South Reservoir, which is located at the north end of Gail Drive near Grove Way in Castro Valley. EBMUD will be constructing one 8.5 million gallon water storage tank within the footprint of the existing reservoir basin. This reservoir replacement will improve water quality and increase reliability by removing excess storage. The new reservoir will be designed to meet current seismic design standards.

Workplan and Schedule

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act, a Notice of Exemption was prepared and filed with Alameda County in January 2011. Comments on this document closed as of February 15, 2011.

Existing reservoir demolition is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014 and be completed in 2015. New reservoir construction will follow the demolition and will take approximately one year to complete.
