Byrd Park Tank Rehabilitation Project

The Byrd Park Reservoir was built in 1876 and has been serving the City of Richmond residents and surrounding counties continuously since then. The Reservoir operates as two finished water tanks. Upgrades and maintenance have occurred over the years to ensure  peak operating capacity. DPU is in the process of additional upgrades to improve the  distribution system reliability and increase the operational flexibility of facilities associated with the Reservoir. This tank rehabilitation project will be completed in two phases.
