Waluga Reservoir 2 (WR2) Construction Update
WR2 is online!
The WR2 has passed its testing and is now online! Crews have begun painting the roof of the reservoir and expect to be finished by next week. The rest of the reservoir will be painted shortly afterward, depending on the weather.
WR1 improvements begin soon
Now that WR2 is online, crews can begin the scheduled improvments to the exisitng WR1. Beginning in June, crews will saw-cut around the roof hatch to create a larger opening, through which equipment and materials will be brought in by a crane. Once inside, the floor will be cut to allow crews to tunnel from a nearby pipe vault just outside of the reservoir to the inside of WR1. Both locations will require the excavation of a work pit. Activities at the site have been relatively quiet lately, so please expect an increase in noise during this time.
