Summit Reservoir Replacement

Summit Reservoir, Kensington & Berkeley

Summit Reservoir, Kensington & Berkeley

EBMUD recently replaced the old Summit Reservoir and Shasta-Woods Pumping Plant located on the  Berkeley/ Kensington border. Construction included replacing the old, 37 million gallon, open-cut Summit Reservoir with a smaller 3.5 million gallon concrete water tank to improve water quality, meet current water demands and enhance our operations. The Shasta-Woods Pumping Plant was also replaced as part of this project and landscaping, a new perimeter path on Grizzly Peak and a new perimeter fencing were also added. 

Workplan and schedule

Though all construction is now complete, you will see landscapers onsite intermittently for the next few years to ensure new site plantings are well established. We thank you for your patience as we worked over the last four years to complete this complex and needed project.
