Cooper Mountain Reservoir #2 and Associated Improvements Project
■ The new 5.5-million-gallon prestressed concrete reservoir was completed, filled, and put into operation in February.

■ Well drilling and development of the ASR Well No. 7 well is complete. The well pump and downhole equipment was installed in March. Construction of the ASR Mechanical Building and Booster Pump Station Building is close to completion with ongoing chemical, electrical, and instrumentation installation.
■ Construction of the metal storage building was completed in April.
■ Backfilling of the reservoir, final grading, landscaping, security, and fencing and gate installation will be completed in the coming months.
