The added water storage capacity will provide firefighters and other first responders with more water in case of an emergency and the booster pumps will provide more pressure to the system to overcome the steep elevation changes in the neighborhood, according to the release.
Cal Water will demolish the old storage tanks in the spring, weather permitting, it said.
Cal Water serves about 60,900 people through 18,900 service connections in Portola Valley, Woodside, Atherton, and portions of Menlo Park, Redwood City, and San Mateo County, and has provided water service in the area since 1936.
The agency is in the permitting stage of another water storage project in the Skywood Acres neighborhood of Woodside that was approved by the Town Council in March, according to Town Manager Kevin Bryant.
