Washwater Tank Seismic Improvements

washwater tank

joint facilities Project # 1751

The Washwater Tank is a 1 million gallon above ground steel tank located at the R.E. Badger Water Filtration Plant site. The tank has a diameter of 46 feet and is 82.5 feet tall, and was built in 1968 to store water used for backwashing of the filters at the R.E. Badger Filtration Plant. This project includes the design and construction of improvements to enhance the Washwater Tank’s ability to withstand seismic events. In order to improve economy of scale and enhance efficiency, the project will be combined with other Joint Facilities Projects. 

Design was initiated in Fiscal Year 2017 and completed in Fiscal Year 2018. Construction will occur between Fiscal Year 2019 and Fiscal Year 2020. 

This project will extend the service life of the Washwater Tank, and bring it into compliance with seismic regulatory requirements.
