Property located at 7215 E Day Mt Spokane was purchased by the district in early 2020 as a site for the 1.5 million gallon reservoir. This site was selected based on the proximity to the existing Zone 9A reservoir. The similar elevation of the new reservoir allows for the two reservoirs to operate in tandem, providing approximately 2.5 million gallons of useable water during peak demands.
In June of 2020, the project was publicly bid and later awarded to LaRiviere Inc, based out of Athol, Idaho. LaRiviere plans to begin mobilization and the installation of site controls the week of August 10th. Site grading and waterline installation is expected to continue through the fall of 2020. Traffic slowdowns and/or temporary road closures along E. Day Mt. Spokane Rd, E. Lowe Rd., and N. Howe Rd are likely during the waterline installation.
Tank assembly and tank coating will progress through the spring of 2021. It is anticipated that the project will be substantially completed by June of 2021. We will continue to keep you updated during the construction progression.
