Co-locating a park and a storage tank
In April 2015, LOTT completed the Reclaimed Water Storage Tank at the site of the City of Tumwater Park Deschutes Valley Park off of T Street. The one million gallon storage tank allows for use of Class A Reclaimed Water by the City of Tumwater at the Tumwater Valley Municipal Golf Course and other sites in the area. The new storage tank, set into the hillside overlooking the Deschutes River valley, provides the foundation for the small neighborhood park. Park features include a grassy play area, playground equipment, restrooms, benches, and a view area overlooking the valley. Visitors will also find a tile mosaic in the overlook area created by local ceramic artist, Mike Cummins. The public art highlights our communities many connections to water. The park opened to the public in May 2016.
