The Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant project is nearly 80% complete and on schedule to finish major construction in December 2014.

Since work began in 2011, construction workers have logged more than 900,000 hours on the job for this important infrastructure investment. In recent months, the Contractor has continued building new filters, washwater tanks, and a new Treated Water Sampling Building.

The new 11 million gallon Treated Water Reservoir is the largest and most complex part of the Harry Tracy construction. The Contractor has completed concrete placement for each of the 88 columns inside the reservoir that will help it withstand a major seismic event. 

The plant is currently online and capable of drawing raw water from the Crystal Springs Reservoir System to provide to our customers. By December 2014, Harry Tracy will be able to reliably provide up to 140 million gallons per day, for 60 days, within 24 hours of a major earthquake on the San Andreas Fault.
