Ten-month work begins to fix Maple Leaf Reservoir

May 21st, 2015 · No Comments

Signs are up at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park saying 10 months of earthquake retrofitting will begin soon.

Expect: Trucks and construction equipment around and within the park (see graphic).

Do Not Expect: Tearing up our (almost) new park.

It was stressed that none of the reservoirs will have to be dug back open for these retrofits – the work will be done inside, with crews and equipment accessing through existing maintenance hatches.

Why is this happening? Because the underground reservoirs were built to above-ground specifications. That’s why.
