Berryman Reservoir Replacement

Berryman Reservoir Replacement
Berryman Reservoir

EBMUD has replaced the old Berryman Reservoir, which is located on Euclid Avenue in Berkeley, with a new steel tank that is more suited to withstand seismic activity. Engineering studies showed that the earthen dam which formed the old reservoir, built more than a century ago, could be seriously damaged in a major earthquake.

Construction Information

Construction began in June 2010 and was completed in early 2013.
