Valley Springs, CA — The three year wait is over for the new Valley Springs water tank.
It was 2004 when the 2,676 acre Pattison fire destroyed the old redwood tank and burned 17 homes. Now Tank 602, at a cost of $1.8 million and with a capacity of more than 150,000 gallons, is in place and fully operational providing local customers with increased water pressure while also assisting with fire suppression in case of an emergency.
Seventy-five percent of the project cost was paid by the state´s Office of Emergency Services.
