Tahoe Keys Emergency Generator

DOWL designed the installation of a permanent emergency generator at Well #3 in the Tahoe Keys neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. Our scope of work included project management, design services, bid support, and project close-out. The design included several challenges including California air quality requirements, noise and color restrictions required by community codes, limited record drawings, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency permitting, and Liberty Energy utility requirements. Until this project was constructed, the Tahoe Keys community relied on a mobile generator, which required the electric utility company to deliver and connect the unit during power outages. Without power to fill the well, residents lived with water rationing or sometimes no water during outages. With a permanent generator onsite, backup power will immediately begin when the utility power goes out.
