A new half-million-gallon water tank
in Lake Camanche Village is now providing five times more water to the
community for periods of peak use and when needed by firefighters, AND
improving water quality at the tap.
The tank and a new 12-inch pipeline connecting to nearby Wells No. 9 and 14 are
being paid for in full by a $1.93 million state grant that does not have to be
paid back. The 500,000-gallon steel tank stores water pumped from two
groundwater wells and replaces a 45-year-old leaking 90,000-gallon redwood
tank. Water then flows by gravity to homes in Lake Camanche Village.
