Summit Reservoir, Kensington & Berkeley

EBMUD recently replaced the 37 million gallon open-cut Summit Reservoir with a smaller 3.5 million gallon concrete water tank located on the same site in Berkeley/ Kensington. Additional completed work includes new landscaping, new perimeter fencing, a new walking path along Grizzly Peak Boulevard, paved access roads, drainage improvements, new water pipelines, and paving on Spruce Street, as well as the re-installation of the metal bird structures. The Shasta/Woods Pumping Plant is in the process of being replaced as well.

Workplan and schedule

Final construction activities, such as demolishing the old pumping plant, testing the new pumping plant, and grading are ongoing. Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2019. Standard project work hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
