Bickford Ranch Water Tank and Pump Station
The Bickford Ranch Specific Plan (BRSP) is a master planned community with residential, parks, public facilities, and open space land uses located within an approximately 1,928-acre plan area. The proposed development is located in Placer County, California, east of Sierra College Boulevard and south of Lincoln Newcastle Highway (Highway 193). The current specific plan was amended and approved in 2015 to serve 1,890 residential units. The BRSP project is anticipated to be built out in three phases over the next 15 to 20 years. Additional information about the BRSP can be found at: Bickford Ranch Specific Plan | Placer County, CA.
This Facilities Agreement (FA) Project is being funded and completed by Bickford Ranch Developers (Bickford) for the conveyance of water for the BRSP. Bickford began construction on Phase 1 of the Bickford Ranch Community Facility District in 2021 with mass grading portions of development and some undergrounding of major infrastructure. As part of this FA, an 18-inch transmission main will be constructed from the pump station to connect to the on-site Phase 1 water distribution system and ultimately connect to a future Tank at the top of BRSP. This $10 million tank and pump station provides the necessary flows to meet phased demands, including fire flow.
