Gravity Pipeline Wells Project

Tacoma Water is upgrading the Gravity Pipeline Wells, located Southwest of 112th St E and 86th Ave E., including replacing well pumps and motors, demolishing existing buildings, and building new ones. We are also adding a corrosion control facility. This project ensures water service reliability from this source, primarily a backup source for situations such as a drought or an earthquake.

November 2022 Update:

Well testing is complete. We will use the information collected during these tests to design the replacement equipment.

Key project milestones and timeline:

  • Design and permitting – Now to mid-2023
  • Surveying – Complete
  • Well testing – Complete
  • Construction – TBD

Upgrades to our Gravity Pipeline Wells will occur on Pipeline Road at the facilities shown in the image below.
