Vista Verde Reservoir Replacement—Phase II

Owner:
City of Escondido
Location:
Vista, California
Value:
$9.5 million
Completion:
September 2018
Contractor:
Pacific Hydrotech Corporation

The City of Escondido selected Butier Engineering, Inc. to provide construction management and inspection services for the replacement of the Vista Verde Reservoir. The existing 750,000-gallon steel reservoir, which suffered from internal corrosion, is being replaced with two 1 million-gallon Type I pre-stressed concrete reservoirs that will be partially buried. The extra capacity for water storage will allow additional development in the area, which is just south of Rincon Avenue.

Additional scope items include new interconnecting piping, valve structure, grading, paving, site improvements, landscaping, electrical, instrumentation, and incidentals for a complete and usable facility. The pipeline portion of the project will extend from the existing pump station along Vista Verde Way, up to the Vista Verde Way cul-de-sac (approximately 6,000 linear feet). It includes inlet, outlet and drain lines up the hill to the vault structure. The piping from the vault structure to the tanks consists of CML/TC steel pipe.
