Four Seasons Tank Line Replacement

Client: 
Tahoe City Public Utility District
Key staff: 
Principal-In-Charge Walter R. Auerbach, P.E. Project Manager/Engineer - Nathan Chorey, P.E. Surveyors - Keith Masuda, P.E., P.L.S. and Sara Carbonari, L.S.I.T.

The project replaces 2,500 LF of small diameter tank line from the Four Season Water Tank to the Tahoe Woods Subdivision with 12" tank line to provide fire flows that comply with the California Fire Code. The new line also provides electrical service to the water tank to enable the TCPUD to remotely monitor the water level inside the tank. In addition, the project connects two dead end waterlines, needed to improve the fire flows and water quality.

Special considerations in this project included close coordination with the USFS. The water tank and waterlines are on USFS land acquired through the Burton Santini Act. A USFS Special Use Permit, NEPA compliance, as well as proper legal privilege were required.
