Magnolia Park tennis courts and parking lot to close for 6-month reservoir project

The Magnolia reservoir and booster pump station near Magnolia Park and Magnolia Park Family Resource Center, located at 11402 Magnolia Street, are set to undergo rehabilitation beginning Monday, August 16, 2021 through February 2022. Park goers are advised that the tennis courts and the north-side parking lot on Magnolia Street and Joyzelle Drive will be closed during the rehabilitation project. Temporary construction fencing will be installed. Other park amenities and the south-side parking lot on Magnolia Street and Orangewood Avenue will be available.

The project involves the rehabilitation of a buried pre-stressed concrete reservoir and a booster pump station. The reservoir rehabilitation includes various repairs, construction of seismic curb, roof waterproofing, and the addition of a fall protection system. Site specific improvements include rerouting of pipes; replacing of sump hatch and lid, and meter vault and piping; repair of overflow flap gate; construction of a new parking lot and ramp; and installation of bollards and a mow strip around the reservoir. The booster pump station rehabilitation includes the refurbishment of the existing flow control valve, and the replacement of the existing engine, booster pump, exhaust system, catalytic converter, butterfly valves, check valve, roof, and dormer.

The $3,204,880 project was awarded by the Garden Grove City Council on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 to Pacific Hydrotech Corporation. The project is funded by the Water Enterprise Fund.
