The City of Spokane has determined the need to add a water tank in Spokane’s South Hill High System pressure zone. The additional tank will benefit system operations and reliability for the water system serving both the mid and upper South Hill neighborhoods.
Water tank locations must meet the following specifications:
Water tank design must meet the following specifications:
The City located 11 sites that met the minimum site requirements listed under Location Requirements. A list of those sites along with the selection criteria for each site can be viewed online. While it is not necessary to meeting all site selection criteria, costs increase for each criteria which is not met. That is, the more site selection criteria which are met, the less costs that will be incurred by the City's water rate payers.
After evaluating numerous locations in the South Hill/Lincoln Heights pressure zone, the City has determined that Hamblen Park provides a location that meets all of the required specifications with the least amount of impact on nearby homeowners.
Additionally, the City Parks Department is assessing a potential Parks Department/Public Works partnership that would mitigate the construction of the water tank with improvements to parks in the area. This would be a unique opportunity to leverage non-Parks monies for park improvements, which would maximize citizen benefits while minimizing the total cost of the improvement.
