A second storm is expected to hit the Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and temperatures in the mid to upper forties.
For the first time in a decade, the SoCal Fire and Rannedge Irrigation District will open a new facility for water storage at Camp Pendola.
Fire Chief Dave Hagerty said the new water filtration system will improve the quality of water stored at Camp Pendola while also reducing the district’s reliance on water that would normally be used for fire suppression.
The new water treatment and filtration system has a maximum capacity of about 2.4 million gallons, Hagerty said.
“When we have something like this, we can control what goes into the water system,” he said.
The new filtration system will be able to improve its quality, including reducing turbidity as well as removing chlorine, he added.
