The storage facility improvement project will help address water storage deficiencies for the Apple Valley Heights CWD. The system does not meet the storage capacity requirements in accordance with the California Drinking Water Code of Regulation, Section 64554(a) of Tittle 22. The regulations state that a public water system with less than 1,000 service connections, the system shall have storage capacity equal to or greater than MDD (Maximum Day Demand). The current Storage capacity holds up to 260,000 gallons and the MDD is 500,000 gallons. In the 2010 Sanitary Survey, the San Bernardino District recommended that the County Water District install new storage tanks for their system to adequately meet the system demands.
