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. Design was initiated in Fiscal Year 2017 and will be 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.
