Cal Water completes water tank installation in Woodside

California Water Service (Cal Water) has completed construction of two 64,000-gallon water storage tanks and the installation of two 40-horsepower booster pumps in the Old La Honda Road neighborhood in Woodside, according to a Cal Water news release.

The new storage tanks replaced two old 20,000-gallon tanks at the site of 503 Old La Honda Road near Orchard Hill Road.

The added water storage capacity will provide firefighters and other first responders with more water in case of an emergency and the booster pumps will provide more pressure to the system to overcome the steep elevation changes in the neighborhood, according to the release.

Cal Water will demolish the old storage tanks in the spring, weather permitting, it said.

Cal Water serves about 60,900 people through 18,900 service connections in Portola Valley, Woodside, Atherton, and portions of Menlo Park, Redwood City, and San Mateo County, and has provided water service in the area since 1936.
