Water Infrastructure – Orinda CA

Description

1936, the East Bay Municipal Utility District joined forces with the Works Progress Administration to install a new 6″ pipe around the north side of Lake Orinda, replacing a former line that ran across the dam. The new pipe allowed gravity feeding of the Charles Hill Tank from the Orinda Tank, saving municipal funds previously used to pump water between the two tanks.
