Water Storage Tank and Pipeline Improvements Coming Soon
The City of Corona will soon begin construction of the Keith 1220-Zone Potable Water Storage Tank Project. The project will include construction of a 2.5 million-gallon pre-stressed concrete tank at the southeast corner of Nelson Street and Keith Street.
The project will include undergrounding of existing overhead power and telephone lines in the vicinity of the tank site, construction of approximately ¼-mile of new waterline from the tank site to Duncan Way along Nelson Street and Courtney Street, reclaimed waterline and storm drains in Nelson Street and Masters Drive, street improvements, on-site utilities, and site work to include fencing, gates, paved vehicle access, lighting, landscaping and irrigation.
The tank will be painted in earth tone colors to blend in with the surrounding natural landscape. Landscaping will provide screening around the tank to enhance the appearance of the tank site. Initial activities to be seen at the tank site will include brush clearing in early January. This project will provide additional operational, emergency, and fire flow storage in the City’s 1220-Zone water distribution system.
Construction will begin in January 2020 and is expected to be completed by February 2021.
Daytime construction hours are planned to minimize impacts to residents in the construction area. We are committed to completing the project as quickly as possible; however, this timeframe could change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
What to Expect During Construction:
- Increased construction traffic
- Occasional traffic delays due to work in the streets
- Grading and excavation
- Noise and dust
