The Linda Vista Complex serves groundwater to west, central, and east Anaheim and is capable of supplying about a third of the city's water supply to its customers each day. In summer months, Linda Vista pumps more than 20 million gallons of water per day. This project improves system reliability for this important water source by replacing its aging infrastructure.
Project Scope include:
Phase 2 consists of the demolition and removal of existing equipment and facilities that are near the end of their service life; replacement of existing pumps with new larger and more efficient pumps and motors; modernization of the existing electrical and control systems; upgrades to the site security systems; construction of a new building to house and protect the new pump station electrical and control equipment; and other related site improvements.
This project is part of the Utilities' program to rehabilitate and replace aging infrastructure.
The tank and pump station provide up to a third of the entire City's water supply-serving groundwater to the Canyon Business Center, parts of Anaheim Hills, and much of central Anaheim.
The previous 4-million gallon storage reservoir was constructed in the 1930s; the new tank dedicated in 2014 meets all current design codes and can withstand a major earthquake.
Project Benefits include:
Enhanced flexibility to meet demands
Reduced maintenance requirements
Improved energy efficiency with pumps
Construction of infrastructure currently underway:
Duct banks and vaults for high voltage electrical equipment
Duct banks and vaults for fiber optics
Duct banks and vaults for the controls and instrumentation to pump station
Excavation and building foundation grading
Surge tank foundation
Completion Schedule: Fall 2021
