TUD Completes Construction of New Red Bud Pump Station

Red bud lift station

Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) crews completed construction of the new Red Bud Pump Station in May 2022, the final piece of infrastructure to consolidate the 420k, Gopher and Saratoga water tanks, the Saratoga Hydro-pneumatic Pump Station and Racetrack Booster Pump Station. The Red Bud Pump Station was designed and constructed in house and is part of the 4th Phase of the Cuesta Heights Tank and Distribution Improvements Capital Improvement Project (CIP) started in 2020. The new pump station decommissions and consolidates three poor condition, failing water tanks and two pump stations which is estimated to significantly reduce operation and maintenance costs, increase water reliability and quality, and mitigate the risk of tank failure in this area. We are proud of the finished product and neighbors in the area praised the district for its workmanship.
