Penn Park Reservoir Replacement

News and project updates

May 1, 2017

The new tank is in place, but doesn't have water yet because the tank still needs to be disinfected. Current work includes
  • installing landscaping around the tank
  • coating the tank exterior (delayed because of weather)
  • making the park accessible while the grass and landscaping get established

Watch the mural take shape

The finished tank will have a scenic mural painted on its exterior this summer. We'll post the mural painting schedule on this page as soon as we have it. You might enjoy watching the mural take shape. 

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 is closed to users during construction. In the mean time, why not visit one of Bothell's other parks?


Construction began in late March 2016 and should wrap up in spring 2017.
