You are here:Home/City of Crestview, Well No. 9 and Elevated Storage Tank
Location: Crestview, Florida
Owner: City of Crestview
Completed On: July 2014
this project required the construction of an approximately 146 foot tall, 500,000 gallon elevated water storage tank with cathodic and lightning protection systems; drilling an approximately 800 foot deep, 18 inch diameter Floridian Aquifer well; installing a 800GMP pump and building a CMU well pump house with concrete foundations and standing seam metal roof. The well pump house ‘houses’ the well & pump, MCC (motor control center), tank level control system and separate chlorine water treatment room. The pump house is fitted with an alarm/SCADA system which is capable of transmitting signals (generator run, chlorine alarm, door open, etc.) to an offsite location for monitoring purposes. The well pump and building power have an emergency backup diesel generator in the event of a power outage. Water to and from the tank is conveyed via aboveground (inside pump house) and below ground (outside pump house) 10 inch ductile iron pipe (DIP). Water piping then transitions to 10 inch PVC as it exits the property. Site work consisted of site clearing preparation, grading, a water conveyance swale with rip rap, asphalt and gravel parking areas, landscaping, and a 6 foot FDOT chain-link fence for security of the facility.
