Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement Construction Update

Last week, the large crane lifted the smaller crane out of the tank (pictured left). Both cranes were then dismantled and hauled off-site by several large trucks.

Roof pours begin next week!

All 52 columns are now poured, and the crews have reinstalled shoring support and tied rebar for the new roof.

Weather permitting, early next week, the first concrete pour will take place for new roof deck. The roof will be poured in a checkerboard pattern, one quadrant at a time. Each quadrant will require 256 cubic yards of concrete to be poured, about 25 concrete truck loads in one day!

The four major concrete pours are scheduled to take place every five-seven days through mid-March, although this is weather dependent.

Neighbors should expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during concrete pours, as a large pumper truck and many concrete trucks will be operating on site.

Please watch for flaggers on Carman Drive, and expect some minor delays during pours.

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

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.
