We are pleased to report that the concrete pours for the 11 million gallon treated water reservoir (TWR) at Harry Tracy are 75% complete, and that the work has gone faster than expected for each of the first three concrete “placement activities”. The one remaining date for this work is Tuesday, May 7th.

Heavy trucking hours along Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno: 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Residents may require extra time to enter and exit their driveways.

Teamwork is required to carefully
place rebar for the TWR walls.

A “whirlybird” is used to smooth the
surface of the concrete, rather
than using a trowel by hand.
