South Reservoir Replacement

South Reservoir, Castro Valley

South Reservoir, Castro Valley

EBMUD recently replaced the South Reservoir, located at the north end of Gail Drive near Grove Way in Castro Valley, with a 9 million gallon water storage tank within the footprint of the existing reservoir basin. The reservoir replacement project improves water quality and increases reliability in the distribution system. The new reservoir was designed to meet current seismic design standards. No significant change was made to the views of the reservoir from surrounding residences as a result of this project, and most of the existing embankment slopes remained in place. Additional landscape screening was planted along the western and southeast edges of the reservoir site perimeter to enhance existing screening of views of the new tank for residents along Grove Way and Gail Drive. 

Workplan and schedule

Though all construction is now complete, you will see EBMUD staff onsite intermittently. We thank you for your patience as we worked to complete this complex and needed project.
