The contractor will be working extended hours inside the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant beginning Monday, June 24th. This swing shift may end as late as 2:00 am, Monday through Friday.
Lights may be visible in the area during the evenings. Our contractor is now constructing the walls for the new 11 million gallon treated water reservoir.
Construction is now 50% complete as Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant is undergoing major seismic and reliability upgrades through the Water System Improvement Program. Work continues on new filters, retrofitting and installing critical process and electrical equipment, and upgrading piping systems.
We can genuinely say the Hetch Hetchy Water System is more seismically reliable today than it was a year ago. Upon completion of construction, the treatment plant will be able to reliably provide up to 140 million gallons per day (MGD), for up to 60 days, within 24 hours following a major earthquake on the San Andreas Fault.
