Tehaleh water storage tank

Tacoma Water will construct a large water storage tank and pump station on a two acre parcel of land in the Pinnacle Ridge neighborhood of the Tehaleh community. This project works to ensure the reliability of water service, including adequate supply for firefighting and other emergency situations. A key component of this project is to control and maintain water pressure, enhancing the comfort of the community.

The need for this storage tank was determined during the planning and design of Pinnacle Ridge by Tacoma Water. The timeline for the project is directly tied to the growth of the community.

To minimize impact on the neighborhood, the site for the tank is on existing utility-zoned property. Tehaleh developers helped select the site during initial design of the neighborhood for its proximity and accessibility.

August 25, 2021 Project Update

This project is nearing the final design. We continue to work with the Tehaleh Architectural Review Committee and Brookfield Property Development (formerly Newland) for design coordination. The Conditional Use Permit for this work was submitted to Pierce County in April 2021. Construction has been moved to an anticipated start date of Spring 2022.

Process for design and construction:

  • Site design – storage tank, pump station and landscaping
  • Submit design to Pierce County for conditional use permit
  • Prepare for construction by clearing property
  • Build storage tank and pump station once permit is secured
