August 11, 2022; 6 to 7 PM – On-Site Tour. The City of Bainbridge Island invites you to a “walking site tour” that will provide opportunities to learn more about the Winslow Water Tank Replacement project, ask project team members questions, and provide input on property tank locations and tank design. For more information, see invite below:
The Winslow Water System serves 2,450 customers in the Winslow and Fletcher Bay areas. These areas are currently served by the two High School Reservoirs which include the 1-million-gallon Tank 1 (near the right field of the Bainbridge High School softball field) and the 1.5-million-gallon Tank 2 (behind home plate of the softball field). Tank 1 was constructed in 1973 is not up to current seismic standards and is nearing the end of its useful life. Tank 2 is not quite as old as Tank 1 but may also be seismically vulnerable and in need of upgrades, which the City is currently analyzing.
The project consists of demolishing Tank 1 and constructing a new 2-million-gallon elevated water tank. Tank 2 will be retained and seismically upgraded (pending the analysis) but will be used only for back up and emergency use. As a result of an Alternatives Analysis, the City has selected the Tank 2 location as its preferred alternative. Both the current location of Tank 1 and the preferred location are on Bainbridge Island School District Property. The City is working with the School District to reach an agreement on the preferred location.
August 11, 2022 - On-Site Tour from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
