Lake View Reservoir (1320 Lake View Avenue) provides water storage and fire protection to a large portion of the Lake View Hill Neighborhood.
This reservoir is too small and has reached the end of its life. The City proposes to construct a larger reservoir, improving water storage for the remainder of the city’s east side.
A full description of the project is posted on the Utility website at http://www.cityofmadison.com/water/plans. You are invited to a public meeting to learn about the project.
If you cannot attend, email written comments and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or by US Mail to MADISON WATER UTILITY, 119 E Olin Avenue, Madison WI 53713.
Park is vulnerable to construction erosion
Because this site is very steep, there's potential for a lot of muddy runoff into nearby Lake Mendota.
There is already severe erosion in several places.
In addition, the park is a natural area with native plants, so we hope these can be protected.
Here's the flat top of the park where the water tower is located.
