This project will consist of design and construction of a new 5 million gallon welded steel water tank. The new tank will reflect the nominal dimensions and exact base elevation of the current tank located at the City�s Water Production Facility in the Town of Chino Valley and will be located to the east of the existing tank. The proposed tank location will require grading and engineered fill work for the tank pad as well as piping to connect the tank to the existing system. The project will include some minor landscape work, and site security will be incorporated into the new tank project.

Dibble is the design engineer for the project. The 100% plan phase is ongoing, and plans are expected to be submitted in February 2017. Construction should get underway in the spring.

Woodson Engineering was selected as the design engineer for this project. The engineering design contract was awarded at the July 14, 2015 City Council meeting.

Woodson Engineering has completed their 30% Design for the Road Improvements. Woodson Engineering and City Staff met with the residences impacted by the project on March 16, 2016 and will consider a revised design concept that will acknowledge the following concerns of the residences: Preserve all trees to the extent feasible No sidewalk Keep road as narrow as possible Consider Traffic Calming elements in the design Re-Evaluate Hydrology to determine the feasibility of not focusing all drainage to one location. Consider the adequacy of existing drainage swales. The use of curbing would be considered for managing drainage only Consider rural nature of neighborhood Match adjacent existing pavement road widths Address drainage outfall volumes and velocities to not impact existing drainage facilities.

Based on the residential meeting, these items will be addressed in the 60% design to the extent feasible. The scope of work was recently increased to include replacement of the water main in the area up to White Spar Road. The 60% design plans are scheduled to be completed in March 2017, at which time another meeting will be set up with the impacted residences. Site location map below.
