If this is such a great idea, why was the reservoir drained in the first place? Earthquake safety? Pollution?
The City of Pacific Grove is taking a pro-active approach in the Central Coast water crisis. The city is moving forward with a plan to restore a water reservoir.
The proposed project would sit on the current operations yard for California American Water on David Avenue in Pacific Grove. The site was previously a dam that was built in the late 1800’s.
The reservoir would store storm water runoff that is otherwise unused. The are also plans to pull water from underground springs throughout the city.
