Mott MacDonald has extensive experience in the design of all types of new and upgraded water storage facilities. Water tanks may be constructed of steel, bolted steel, precast/prestressed concrete, cast in place concrete, or composite steel/concrete.
We have also been responsible for the inspection and rehabilitation of tanks, including blasting and recoating, removing lead-based coatings (including containment systems), upgrading overflow and venting systems, upgrading ladders/handrails, and complying with OSHA and local regulatory requirements.
Our water storage tank services have included these:
- Hydraulic analysis
- Tank siting analysis
- Tank alternative analysis (ground level, standpipe, elevated)
- Preliminary/detailed design (tank, control valves, baffle design/CFD modeling, mixing/water quality considerations, site/overflow, structural foundations, security)
- Rehabilitation of existing tanks (inspection, conditions assessment, regulatory compliance, lead testing, design and preparation of plans and specifications)
- Construction administration and resident engineering
