Penn Park Reservoir Replacement

News and project updates

August 18, 2017

Penn Park's new water reservoir is finished and the park is now open!

Project description

As part of the City's adopted Water Comprehensive Plan, we replaced the potable water storage tank located in Penn Park to double its storage capacity to one million gallons. The new tank is in the same location as the existing tank, but has a larger footprint. The estimated construction cost is $2.7M.

The former water tank served the area since 1960.

Public impacts

Penn Park was closed to users during the new reservoir's construction.


Construction began in late March 2016 and ended in August 2017.
