The Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency (SCVWA) has selected Civiltec to design a new 1.58-million-gallon concrete water tank for the Deane Zone, located in Santa Clarita, CA. Civiltec has conducted several studies for SCVWA that identified a 4.22-million-gallon storage deficiency in the pressure zone, which the new 1.58-million-gallon concrete tank will help alleviate. This project will be located at the existing SCVWA Deane Tank site south of Sierra Highway and west of Winterdale Drive, ultimately meeting water storage requirements for the proposed Sand Canyon Plaza Development.

Civiltec has assisted in planning the future construction of two tanks at a new location within the Skyline Ranch development, satisfying storage requirements for both the future development and the existing Deane Zone.

The new 1.58-million-gallon prestressed concrete tank will require extensive grading, retaining walls, new potable water system piping, and electrical and control systems, retrofits to the existing tanks, and a new surplus soil pad to minimize/eliminate export from the site. Some challenges Civiltec is prepared to encounter include surface water collection and tank drainage systems, designing a new drainage conveyance system strategy, and connection to the existing storm drain system southeast of the site.

This project is expected to be completed by November 2022. Staff members from all four offices will be engaged in this project. W. David Byrum, PE will serve as overall Project Manager.
