This structure will be located on IRWD's property, southeast of the existing building.

When: March through December, 2023

Construction hours: 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday

As a part of this project, the gated entry to the facility will be widened for improved access to the site, and the existing chain link gate will be replaced with an onamental steel gate. A new security fence will be installed across the reservoir acces road to address community concerns about trespassing on the reservoir access road at night.

IRWD has worked with the homeowner's association to ensure that the improvements blend with the surrounding community and maintain the aesthetics of the neighborhood, including providing additional trees to help screen the improvements.
