Community Wildfire Protection Program Upgrade Priority Water Infrastructure to Fight Catastrophic Wildfire
D. L. Bliss State Park operates an independent water system that supplies the entire park (including residences, visitor center, campground, beaches and fire hydrants), which was constructed in the 1930's and has not been updated. The water line crosses under Hwy 89, leaks continuously, reducing the amount of water available for public and firefighting use and is at high risk of complete failure. Project includes: new water plant $400k, expanded catch basin $125k, new SCADA system $250k, new well $310k and replacement of two 25,000 gallon redwood tanks with glass-lined steel tanks $225k
