New Water Storage Tank —
Jewett City, Connecticut
LEI designed a new, 326,000 gallon treated water storage tank for the Jewett City Water Company adjacent to the utility's treatment plant. After evaluating tank height and diameter requirements, LEI selected a bolted storage tank with glass fused-to-steel coating as the lowest first cost and lowest future maintenance cost alternative.
The tank was sized to meet peak system demands over and above what the 1.5 MGD plant could provide. In addition, the tank was sized to provide additional volume for fire protection storage. Finally, the tank inlet and outlet configuration were customized to provide radial flow within the basin and to maximize chlorine contact time.
