The project will replace the existing 500,000 gallon water and fire protection tank
that is beginning to show signs of degradation. The new Blue colored, 1.2 million
gallon, glass fused to steel tank will be located just below the existing tank. Once
the new tank is operational and tested, the old tank will be demolished.
The water tank provides both fire and domestic water service to the campus. The existing
tank has been in continuous use since the original construction of the campus and
over time, the inner lining of the tank has begun to show signs of degradation. In
advance of a complete tank failure the campus is proactively installing a water tank.
