Scott Street Water Tank Rehabilitation Progress

A water system rehabilitation project that began in December at the City’s Scott Street ground storage tank site has transitioned to a new phase of tank section placement today. The City’s contractor has been casting concrete floor, wall, and roof sections for a new tank since January. This new phase will allow the contractor to set the precast concrete sections around the tank perimeter and roof. The wall sections will be wrapped with reinforcing wire that’s tensioned to hold the wall panels in place. Wall section placement will be followed by an additional covering that protects the reinforcing wire and will finish with a fresh coat of paint.

This phase of construction is expected to wrap up by March. The contractor will then begin the installation of new piping to connect the tank to the water system, installation of controls, and the placement of other attachments onto the tank in order to make it water tight and meet regulatory requirements. The project is presently scheduled for final completion by June.
