Civiltec partnered with the Town of Prescott Valley to expand their current water storage system by providing the design and oversight for the construction of Summit 2 water tank. The 3.0 MG tank is a partially buried, circular concrete reservoir located adjacent to and behind the existing welded steel Summit tank.
The project included a new 18 inch Ductile Iron Pipe connecting to the existing 12 inch supply line. Solar panels power the tank SCADA, serving as a continuation to the current system. Summit 2 also provides a new source of domestic potable water amid drought conditions for the Prescott Valley community. Site hydrology reports determined optimal management of stormwater runoff and overflow levels. While also expanding upon overall system storage capacity, the tank also provides additional fire suppression measures.
Civiltec met with Prescott Valley officials throughout the process to ensure site specific analysis and safety precautions for the tank’s final configuration. Civiltec integrated proactive system analysis throughout the project in order to minimize any environmental and aesthetic impact of the project. Technical analysis of the pre-existing Summit tank facilitated a seamless interconnection system between the tanks.
Richard Aldridge served as Project Manager for this water storage expansion effort spanning over three years.
