Potential Solutions: Sierra Bella will replace all customer hookup boxes with lockable, modern boxes with water meters that include battery operation and remote reporting systems. The existing boxes will be removed and new boxes will be inserted in the existing locations.-Sierra Bella will locate, purchase and install a 50K gallon tank in its exiting tank location to supplement the existing two 100,000 gallon tanks that currently are in operation. Existing plumbing in the existing valve house has been previously plumbed to accomodate an additional tank. Some source pipes from the pump house (300 ft) will probably have to be replaced to accomplish this project.The tank will be installed on the existing tank site in close approximation to the other 2 tanks. Additional of this new tank will also facilitate regular inspection, cleaning, and repairs for this and the other tanks.-This project would require Sierra Bella to provide 2 new system circulation interconnects between several sections of the existing distribution system. Two additional sections of plumbing with appropriate pipes and shutoff valves are anticipated. In addition to providing for better circulation within the system it will allow for more customers to maintain service during periods of repairs and other system shutoffs.-Sierra Bella will add sufficient emergency generator capability to operate the system is some limited capacity during an emergency. This will require additions to the existing Pumphouse to house the generators, control and interface systems to the existing electrical panels.
