What is the current site?
It is a 4 million gallon underground water storage tank with a building for booster pumps.
What are you proposing?
We are proposing to use a portion of the site to build a water treatment facility. It will most likely be on the front portion of the site and utilize a portion of the underground area currently used by the storage tank. We will try to meet zoning code requirements for a single family home. These include setbacks and heights.
How was the location determined?
It was based on an updated plan for water supply conducted as part of the city comprehensive plan. A treatment plant at the Dublin locations allows the city to address multiple issues identified in the water supply plan, those are; water age, underutilization of the storage tank, and undersized east-west distribution capacity.
What is the schedule?
What will it look like?
Will it be safe?
Yes. The facility will treat water. There are chemicals involved but each have very specific building code requirements to ensure the safe use by our operators and the public.
Will there be an odor associated with treatment.
Will it be occupied? How often?
The facility is expected to be remotely operated. About 1 hour per day occupancy is typical on the other facilities in the city as utility staff conducts daily inspection and maintenance.
Is it going to cost me anything?
Will it make noise?
How long will it take to build?
Is it going to increase traffic in the neighborhood?
