Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement Construction Update

Last week, the large crane lifted a smaller crane inside the tank! This small crane is helping to remove the remaining shoring support, and will be used for forming and pouring the footings and columns.

New activity starting soon – concrete placement for footings and columns

Next week, crews will begin forming footings for the new columns. Weather permitting, late next week or early the following, the first set of footings will be poured. Once the footings are in place, concrete placement for the columns will begin. Neighbors should expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during concrete pours, as a large pumper truck and concrete trucks will be operating on site.

In late December, crews will begin reinstalling shoring support to prepare for the new roof.

Concrete pours for the footings and columns are scheduled to take place daily through early January, although this is weather dependent. Concrete placement for the roof deck is expected to occur sometime in mid-January.
Over the next few weeks, neighbors can expect to see and hear a crane operating overhead, concrete pumper trucks, concrete trucks and truck traffic carrying materials and equipment to and from the site during work hours.

Generally, work hours are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., with some Saturdays, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

In observance of Christmas, no work will occur on Saturday, December 24 through Monday, December 26. Crews will return on Tuesday, December 27.

In observance of New Year’s Eve, no work will occur on Saturday, December 31 through Monday, January 2. Crews will return on Tuesday, January 3.
