Currently the present Water Tank was installed in 1988, so it is 33 years old and leaking . The Water Tank holds 31,000 gallons of potable drinking water. It also meets our community's needs by providing assistance to Cal Fire Station #45, where fire fighters come and take water if needed to fight the fires for the town of Descanso and surrounding areas. At present the water tank works on gravity fed and saves wear and tear on water system and helps with water pressure in the community of Descanso.

To tear the old tank out to install the new tank will cost $6000 from the company installing it.
