Water Source: GW
Active Wells Count: 17
Wells Issues?: XXXXX
Issues: The problem is promarily an issue of protecting the steel plates from further corrosion. The secondary issue is water quality. Station A is the destination for all water pumped from the well field, which has very small amounts of sand, which settles out

Potential Solutions: The subject tank was originally constructed in 1926 of rivited steel plates and wooden roof. The cathodic protection system as well as an agressive inspection and coating program has enabled this tank to remain in service to date. The tank currently serves as one of three, primary storage reserviors at the District's Pump Station A. The proposed scope of work for this project includes the complete interior and exterior re coating of the 920,000 gal water storage tank whose dimensions are 115' x 15'. Recoating of the tank is necessary due to extensive coating failures and exposure of bare metal as was noted in a recent dive and video inspection conducted 01/27/09. Preservation of this crucial storage tank is critical to the Districts storage requirement needs and ability to operate.-The scope of the project includes the earth work, piping and the installation of a new one million gallon tank at Station G. Underground piping consists of inlet, outlet and overflow piping. Earthwork inclueds over excavation and comapction of the tank pad area and installation of a concrete tank ring with seismic anchors. Upon completion of construction the new tank would tested and painting and coating of all steel surfaces would follow. The tank sould also be fitted with a new cathodic protection system which would be activated approxiamtly one year after completion of painting and coating.-The proposed scope of work includes the installation of approximately one mile of 12" transmission mainline and five miles of 8" distribution line, appurtenance and thirty three fire hydrants. The new facilities will be replacing the existing undersized and deteriorated infrastructure and re located to the street front within public rights of way. The project scope shall also include new service lines and meters.-REPLACE 30" PIPELINE WITH 36" PIPELINE-Construction of 900,000 gallon water storage tank.
