The Inwood Water Tower No. 4 project is a $3.2 million water system infrastructure project that is needed to deliver city water service to support the growth and development in the I94 corridor, residing in the high water pressure zone. This project was programmed for design/construction in the 2015-2016 Capital Improvement Plan. More specifically this project will provide necessary water supply and fire protection to the corridor area between Inwood Avenue and Keats Avenue (Sections 33 and 34) that will include the Savona development, Boulder Ponds, Hammes Estates, Dale Properties, Azur Properties, MFC & CM properties, and the existing properties within the Eagle Point Business Park.
The size of the water tower was evaluated based on current and projected water use in the high pressure zone water system including its interaction with the south intermediate pressure zone near Keats and Hudson Boulevard. Water use projections were reviewed to determine the water demands on the system along with fire flow storage. The analysis confirmed the capital improvement program need to construct a 1.0 Million Gallon (MG) elevated water storage tank. A composite style tank was chosen during final design at the direction of the Council at the November 17, 2015 meeting.
The improvements include the construction of 1.0 Million Gallon (MG) Composite Elevated Water Storage Tank. The tank will be similar to style to the existing City Water Tower No. 2 located at the Public Works facility. The mezzanine alternate bid item for the water tower was not chosen to be constructed by direction of the Council on March 15, 2016.
