Water storage is critical. Efficient water system design for storage is the best weapon against climate variability and demand issues. EETS specializes in the incorporation of the water storage tank into pumping and distribution facilities. We listen to our clients, address all environmental issues and regulations and provide quality design work in the most efficient and effective manner.

Spotlight: Water Storage Projects

Arvin-Edison Water Storage District North Canal Spreading Works
Kern County, California

The project consists of expanding the Sycamore Spreading Works by about 90 acres, expanding the N1 Balancing Reservoir by about 30 acres, and constructing four recovery/extraction wells. The Sycamore Expansion, located on the eastern edge of the District, consists of expanding the current groundwater recharge and recovery operation. Facilities include the construction of nine basins and 11 inter-basin structures. The recharged water will be pumped from the aquifer by the District’s existing extraction wells. The N1 Expansion, located in the northern half of the District, consists of adding two additional ponds and four recovery/extraction wells. EETS engineers were hired to design the electrical infrastructure for the following expansion at North Canal Spreading Works and Intertie Pipeline/Pump Station:

  • (2) 12470:480V, single phase transformers
  • (9) 350HP wells
  • (2) 100HP influent pumps
  • PLC-based control system
  • (2) 100HP influent pumps
  • Pre-bid services and construction management

Tahoe City Public Utility District Upper Highlands Pump Station & Water Storage Tank
Tahoe City, California

TCPUD operates 11 water storage tanks and 10 ground water supply wells capable of producing 600 million gallons of potable water annually.  With aging infrastructure and increased demand, the District has been refurbishing and replacing booster pumps and storage tanks.  The Upper Highlands Project involved the installation of the Upper Highlands Booster Pump and a 1.2 million gallon storage tank for reserve for the Highlands community and the local high school.

Yuba-Wheatland Ground Water Recharge & Storage Pumping Stations
Yuba County, California

The Yuba/Wheatland In-Lieu Groundwater Recharge and Storage Project conveys Yuba River surface water, when available, to an area of Yuba County that is currently solely reliant on groundwater. Introduction of the surface water supply enables in-lieu recharge of the Basin to improve water supply reliability, sustain and improve water quality, provide stored groundwater for local use when the surface water supply is limited, and provide water supply to the Environmental Water Account and the SWP and CVP. EETS provided electrical design services for both the pump stations and storage pump stations.
