Water Storage Tank Projects

Westchester Joint Water Works, The Winged Foot Tank Rehabilitation

During the spring/summer of 2020, H2M provided design, inspection and construction administrative services to Westchester Joint Water Works for the rehabilitation of the Winged Foot Tank. The Winged Foot Tank was in need of a new exterior and interior water cavity coating system in order to prevent structural deterioration and prolong the useful life of the tank. This project also included the replacement of the existing tank vent, interior and exterior lighting, roof railing system to accommodate future communication and emergency services antennas, and cable shroud to provide a clean and organized route to connect the existing and future antenna cables to their respective antenna.

 

The Manhasset-Lakeville Water District, The Munsey Park Elevated Water Storage Tank Replacement

In 2013, the Manhasset-Lakeville Water District decided to replace its existing 0.5 million gallon elevated water storage tank. The Munsey Park Elevated Water Storage Tank was originally constructed in 1929 of riveted type construction and was nearing the end of its useful life. Persistent and extensive corrosion had compromised the sanitary and structural integrity of the tank. Along with its age, the capacity of the tank was 500,000 gallons. With increased population and changes in water use patterns by the community, the tank was now undersized. For the Water District to provide peak summer and fire flow demands and maintaining safe water pressure levels, it was decided that the tank would be replaced with a modern welded pedesphere style tank that was 250,000 gallons larger than the original. This new tank style was chosen due to its simplistic appearance and smooth continuous exterior surface which will benefit the protective/decorative coatings and overall lifespan of such since there are no rods, connectors, and crevices.
