(Apple Valley)– Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. (AVRWC) is proud to announce the recent completion of the rehabilitation of the Youngstown Reservoir.

The bolted steel tank holds 118,000 gallons of water and resides on a rocky hillside in northeastern Apple Valley, serving a portion of our community, which is off  the beaten path.  The tank was recoated on both the inside and outside, as well as had valves and an earthquake knuckle installed to make the tank less vulnerable to this type of an emergency.

Before this work could even be started, and to ensure a continual supply of potable water, the Youngstown Booster Pump Station was rebuilt adding new pumps, motors, an electrical panel, along with the addition of a chlorinator and SCADA system to allow us to run the boosters remotely. The structure that houses the boosters was moved from another site to save on construction costs.

“Ranchos Water heartily wishes to thank the Golson family for allowing us access to their property to reach our site,” said Jeff Kinnard, Production Supervisor at Ranchos Water. “Thereby allowing us to make the improvements that affect hundreds of families while allowing future expansion into a newly annexed portion of our system.”
