La Vina Reservoirs
View of the La Vina Reservoirs facing north. Note the flexible connections on the piping between the two reservoirs. To the right of the chlorine feed station are the electrical and telemetry panels.
The La Vina Reservoirs consist of two 500,000 gallon reservoirs that sit side by side. The La Vina Reservoirs were built for the Lincoln Avenue Water Company which serves an area north of the City of Pasadena. These tanks were fast-tracked and took less than 12 months for design and construction. The tanks were also in an area with rocky outcrops but blasting was not required. The tanks and yard piping were designed to withstand a Zone 4 seismic event.
