Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD/District) is holding a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, October 10th at 11am to celebrate the completion of the Jamestown Water Tank Project.
The newly constructed Jamestown Water Tank replaces the former Jamestown Reservoir, a 1-million gallon underground reservoir originally constructed in 1937 that suffered from structural concrete cracking and a floating plastic cover no longer supported by state regulations. The new tank will improve water quality and reliability to the community of Jamestown.
In 2016, the District was awarded up to $1.4 million through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) in partnership with Tuolumne County to construct the project. In April 2018, the District’s Board of Directors awarded the construction of the new tank to Paso Robles Tank Inc. in the amount of $884,865. TUD engineers designed the project and the District’s construction crew performed the site grading and underground work. The District’s local match of $300,000 was funded from the District’s Capital Improvement Plan budget. The project was completed on time and under budget.
