This is a rehabilitation and maintenance project necessary to prolong the useful life of an existing 1 million gallon water tank. The tank is owned by the Mammoth Community Water District (District) and is used to store and distribute water to customers in its service area. The capacity of the water tank will not change as a result of the project. Rehabilitation will consist of recoating the tank interior and exterior and improvements to the existing interior ladder, overflow pipe, upgrade the hatch on the roof and add a manway on the sidewall. There may be weld patches on the existing floor of the tank depending on its condition. All old coating material from the interior and exterior of the tank will be removed and disposed of at a licensed landfill.
An established dirt road will be used to access the tank for the project. All vehicles and equipment will utilize existing barren areas for parking and conducting work. No vegetation will be cleared for the project. No temporary tanks will be used for this project. Work at the site will commence in June 2021 and is expected to be completed by September 2021.
The District’s Board of Directors approved the project at their regular monthly meeting on May 20, 2021.
