This project included a new 3.25MG water reservoir with foundation, site work, piping and upgrades to 2 existing water tanks. Part of the new piping included cutting into an existing 36″ cement mortar lined pipe and inserting a newly fabricated carbon steel ‘wye’ section to tie in a new 48″ water line. The ‘wye’ required precise design and fabrication to match up to the existing 3 points being joined.
Access was severely restricted due to overhead live pressure lines and the tie in had to be performed at night in extreme weather conditions.
Name: Third Clearwell Storage Reservoir & Piping
Category: Civil Construction
One (1) 95’-0” diameter x 60’ high 75,000 BBL Capacity, Three (3) 80’-0” diameter x 60’ high 53,000 BBL Capacity, and One (1) 36’-0” diameter x 32’ high 5800 BBL Capacity API 650 welded steel storage tanks with internal floating roofs constructed and painted in Tacoma, WA.
T BAILEY, INC. performed site development including fuel containment and underground utilities to accommodate 3 new API 650 fuel tanks and 2 UL 142 fuel tanks.
A 2006 Steel Tank Institute Tank of the Year Award-winning 160’ft high x 53’d welded steel water tank with a self-supported seal welded knuckle roof. The site was located in a new housing development and had very limited access and the developer requested minimal clearing on site.
T BAILEY operated as the general contractor and was awarded the Water System Improvement Project for the City of Vale, Oregon. The project was designed to eliminate toxins from the city’s drinking water, specifically arsenic. The City of Vale received funding from the Federal Safe Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund which utilizes American Iron and Steel (AIS) Requirements for the Project. AIS requires all building materials utilizing iron or steel products to be produced in the United States.
The new 80’diameter x 115’h 4.2MG water tank sat on a 110′ diameter x 4.5′ thick mat foundation with a 5.5′ tall ringwall. The foundation contained over 1800 cy of concrete, 147 tons of rebar and 86 each 2 1/2" diameter anchor bolts. The project had a total of 7000 cy of mass excavation to accommodate the new foundation and detention pond.
Project included demolition/removal of an existing standpipe and construction of a new 2.5MG water reservoir, foundation, associated site earthwork/grading, utilities, electrical, telemetry, etc. The new foundation consisted of approximately 1000 cy of concrete to form a 87’ diameter mat foundation for the reservoir with 76 anchor bolts and approximately 144,000 lbs. of steel reinforcement.
Seismic upgrades to the existing 5MG water tank included 45 each new prestressed earth anchors through an expanded concrete foundation with new anchor chairs, piping and other misc. upgrades.
T BAILEY, INC. built a new Pump Station for the private developer of the Maple RIdge Highlands to go along with the new 4Mg Water Reservoir and .5MG Standpipe.
