SHELTER COVE, Calif. — The Shelter Cove community celebrated the completion of a major water project Wednesday.
The new one-million gallon Kennedy water tank was finished after a collaborative effort that took four years from design to completion.
Heralding the project for establishing “a reliable, clean source of water for the community for a very long time,” Humboldt County Supervisor Estelle Fennell joined Shelter Cove residents, project developers and representatives of the California Water Quality Board in dedicating the tank.
During the two-year construction phase Shelter Cove’s seven aging tanks were replaced with six new welded steel tanks with the capacity to hold between 30,000 to 1-million gallons of water.
After toasting the project with a sample from the tank, Fennell recognized Shelter Cove Resort Improvement District 1 General Manager Justin Robbins for his work on the project.
