The work on this project involves retrofitting Oak and Sequoia Rate Control Stations (RCS) in Hayward and Oakland, respectively, demolishing 98th Avenue RCS’s in Oakland, replacing University Pumping Plant (PP) in Berkeley, demolishing University Reservoir and constructing University Reservoir No. 2 in Oakland, and performing other related work to improve long-term system reliability and seismic resilience.
The existing pumps at University PP are about seventy years old and have reached the end of their expected service lives. Work under this project includes demolishing the existing University PP, constructing a new reinforced concrete PP at the site, installing a mechanical pump skid with two vertical turbine pumps and motors with associated piping, valves, and instruments, and constructing other site improvements.
The existing University Reservoir in Oakland will also be demolished and replaced. University No.1 Reservoir was constructed in 2016 as one of two replacement tanks. This project will construct the second tank, including the valve pits and associated piping. This project supports the District’s Long-Term Infrastructure Investment Strategic Plan goal.
