Last Saturday’s open house tour of the City of South Pasadena’s freshly renovated Garfield Reservoir and Water Facility began with the presentation of a certificate of recognition by Evette Kim, a representative from State Senator Anthony Portantino’s office, to the City for the successful completion of its nearly $20 million project. The new facility will also host the Water Division of the City of South Pasadena.
The City of South Pasadena renovated the Wilson Reservoir in 2014 to the tune of $10 million. Located in the middle of a residential neighborhood full of historic, protected California Oaks, construction and renovation of the reservoir caused all sorts of dilemmas for the City.
Graves Reservoir is located in San Marino and has been out of commission for years. Mayor Michael Cacciotti says the reservoir provides an opportunity for the City to have a third source of water.
