Saw-cutting reminder and crane delivery

Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement

Starting on Monday, November 7, crews will begin saw-cutting the Waluga Reservoir 1 roof into small pieces. Unfortunately, this activity will be very noisy for nearby neighbors, and is expected to take about two weeks to complete. As the roof is cut into pieces, the large crane will remove each portion from the roof, along with the columns. A small vacuum truck will also be stationed on the site, located at the end of Parkhill Street, to help keep debris from entering the tank during saw-cutting.

Neighbors can expect to see and hear a crew of workers saw-cutting sections of the roof, a large crane operating overhead, a vacuum truck operating, an increase in dump trucks, and delivery and movement of materials and equipment during work hours. Generally, work hours are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., with some Saturdays, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Thank you for your patience during this important work.

Large crane delivery

On the morning of November 14, a very large (360-ton) crane will be delivered to the site using several large semi-trailer trucks. Due to site constraints, and to minimize traffic impacts during delivery, trucks will be staged near the I-5. Only one truck will enter the site on Carman Drive at time, unload crane materials and then exit, before another truck then arrives to the site. Five trucks are expected to deliver parts for the crane.

Please watch for flaggers and expect some minor delays during delivery on Monday morning. This crane will be used during the demolition process, moving the cut portions of the roof and the columns into trucks for off-site removal.

Pedestrian access safety reminder

Through spring 2017, there is no public access allowed on the site due to active construction. All pathways through the reservoir site are closed to ensure safety. Thank you for your assistance and patience.
