West Side Water Storage Project
Receive email or text notification about progress on this project
The city has identified a need for drinking water storage in northwest Bellevue. This water is necessary to maintain compliance with state Department of Health requirements and national standards for water utilities. Failure to develop additional storage by 2016 may limit development and redevelopment in the area and place emergency capacity at risk.
Project Update (as of 10-1-13)
Bellevue Utilities recently completed an evaluation of existing water storage across our service area along with our ability to effectively move water through existing transmission lines. This evaluation has resulted in a recommendation to enhance our transmission capabilities that will allow optimum use of existing water storage. This alternative management strategy allows us to meet our immediate water needs without construction of new storage capacity.
The city's water storage needs over the next 20 years will be further evaluated as part of the 2014 Water System Plan.
