City postpones ribbon cutting

leave a comment »

Glendale city officials today announced the cancellation of a ribbon cutting ceremony  to celebrate the completed Chevy Chase Reservoir and Pump Station.

With heavy rains in the forecast, the ceremony originally scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 10 will be postponed to an undetermined future date.

The ceremony will herald the completion of the massive project that began with the demolition of the original 90-year-old reservoir last year.

City engineers determined that the reservoir, built in the 1920s, needed to be replaced because cracks in the concrete had significantly compromised the structure’s integrity, especially after the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
