The Trancas Highlands Home owners Association plans to construct a 500,000-gallon water storage tank and a 2,100-foot access road at 31537 Anacapa View Drive.

The Planning Commission approved the construction of a new two-story home at 31537 Anacapa View Drive, where the owners have agreed to allow the water tank to be placed on the property, said Don Schmitz, a land-use consultant representing the THHOA and the owners of the property.

The water from the tank can be distributed through water lines by gravity flow to individual properties. A booster pump station to fill the new water tank will be located near the existing Los Angeles County Waterworks District No. 29 water tank facility at Trancas Canyon Park.

THHOA estimates the assessment district would encompass 209 acres and 66 parcels.

“The water tank will provide a much needed source of potable water and fire protection,” Schmitz said. “There would be 18 fire hydrants.”

An additional “dry” trench is also proposed for undergrounding existing overhead electric lines and extension of utilities such as natural gas and cable. Once underground utilities are installed, overhead lines and poles would be removed.

The THHOA Chief Financial Officer Eric Myer has lived in the Trancas area for 17 years and spoke about the urgent need for municipal water.
