This project replaces an existing 110+-year-old, seismically vulnerable in-ground reservoir with two 2.5 million gallon pre-stressed concrete cylindrical reservoirs.

  4. Background

Replacing this reservoir is key to Everett Water Utilities’ seismic resiliency. The existing Reservoir 2 is past its useful life and structurally deficient. A vulnerability assessment of the City’s water system identified Reservoir 2 as susceptible to failure during a major earthquake because of soil instability along its southern side. The new Reservoir 2 is designed as an earthquake-resistant reservoir.
