Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 10.30.52 AM_thumb.pngDescription

2013 Ground Storage Tank evaluations identified the following:

 

FY2014:  Walker St 0.5 MG GST Improvements - $108,100      Engineering-  $16,900 (15%)                                 

Interior coating, leak prevention, structural repairs (Bolted steel, constructed 1995, 19 yr service life in proposed FY 14)

 

FY2015:  Calder Rd 1 MG GST Improvements - $200,000        Engineering- $30,000 (15%)                                

Interior coating, leak prevention, structural repairs (Bolted steel, Modified 2001, 14 yr service life in proposed FY 15)

 

FY2016:  (1) Dickinson Ave Booster Pump Station:  add pump capacity by reusing the former SSH pumps to maximize use as an emergency water distribution facility.  Construction $250,000  Engineering  $37,500

(2) Third St 0.5 MG GST Improvements -  $150,000      Engineering- $22,500 (15%)                              

Interior coating, leak prevention, structural repairs (Welded steel, constructed 1998, 18 yr service life in proposed FY 16)

 

FY2018:  Calder Rd 1.5MG GST Improvements - $225,000           Engineering- $ 33,750 (15%)          

Interior coating, leak prevention, structural repairs (Welded steel, constructed in 2001, 17 service life in proposed FY18)


Why It's Needed:

Walker St, Calder Rd, and Third St tanks are the oldest in the City's Ground Storage Tank(GST) inventory, that have not had interior coating and structural improvements since they were activated into service. Although the tanks are visually inspected and cleaned annually per TCEQ, gradual degradation of interior surfaces and structural features occur over many years of service. Rust (pitting), scaling, mineral deposits, corrosion of roof supports can contribute to leaks and associated water quality issues that could jeopardize public health and regulatory compliance. 

Dickinson Ave BPS serves as an emergency water distribution facility, receiving source water from the WCID #1 interconnect and a 1500 gpm well constructed in 2014 and funded by the CDBG-DR grant project. The project included ground storage and emergency power improvements, but did not address pump capacity. This project will increase pump capacity and associated system features to ensure full utilization of the 1500 gpm well.
