Prince William County Service Authority is proposing the construction of a new, 2 million-gallon elevated water storage tank which it says will improve efficiency and reliability in the Cherry Hill peninsula in Dumfries, Virginia. Below are details on the project and a PowerPoint on the proposal. Visit PWCSA’s site for more information, which would include bi-weekly updates on traffic impact and other project updates once construction began.
Scope of Work: Construction of a new 2 million-gallon steel elevated water storage tank which
will include excavation for the structural foundation/footings, erection of the steel fluted
column base and steel tank bowl. Final phases include tank painting and installation of control
valves, and other ancillary equipment.
Stated Project Benefits:
• Provide equalization storage to help maintain system pressures during peak demands
• Provide fire protection storage at build-out
• Provide emergency storage in the event of a major main break or power outage
The project cost would be $7.6 million, with an estimated duration of 3.5 to 4 years.
