Many residents have added fire protection to their property by installing a separate water tank to be used solely for the purpose of fire suppression. If you are building on your property, mitigation fees may be waived or lowered if you choose to put in a water tank for fire suppression. If you decide to pursue a separate water tank, please be aware there are county regulations in place that determine the size of the valve, the distance the valve is from the land, etc. Before deciding to install a water tank, please check with the county. Below is web access to the Amador County Code Chapter 15.30.35 and 15.30.37 pertaining to fire safety.
When you install a water tank, please notify us so we can put your water tank on our maps.
