Waluga Reservoir 2 (WR2) Construction Update
Tank Wrapping and pipe installation
During the next few weeks, crews are wrapping the WR2 with steel cables and applying a layer of shotcrete (concrete sprayed pneumatically through a hose at high velocity) to cover them. The steel cable wrapping adds support, especially during a seismic event, and reinforces the reservoir’s walls. A 10-foot safety zone has been established during the wrapping process and the public is reminded to please avoid the site.
In addition, pipe will be installed over the next several weeks from the reservoir site towards East Waluga park to connect with the newly-installed pipeline.
Saturday Construction Work
Crews at the Waluga reservoir site will occasionally work Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. until mid-January to chip rock around the existing reservoir near Parkhill Street to install connecting waterlines. Neighbors can expect an increase in noise during this time.
In observance of Christmas and New Year’s Day, crews will not work Dec. 25 and 26 or Jan. 1. Have a happy and safe holiday season!
