Murphy Reservoir Replacement Reaches Significant Milestone

The City of Whittier’s Murphy Reservoir Replacement Project has reached a significant milestone. Please take a moment to watch the highlight reel to see how the concrete walls were formed for the new reservoir. To meet the water storage deficiency within the existing limited space, the aging twin 0.5 MG concrete reservoirs were demolished and are being replaced with a single 2.31 MG reservoir. The larger reservoir will meet the City’s operational, fire, and emergency storage requirements. Butier Engineering is partnering with the City of Whittier, Gateway Pacific Contractors, INC., Cannon, and Ninyo & Moore on this essential project. Our construction management team includes Stephen White, P.E., Bart Crawford, Bryan Wilson, and Acxel Gutierrez.
