2 mg Elevated Storage Tank – Kentucky American Water Co. – Fayette & Owen County, KY
Size: 2,000,000 gallons
Since 2002, we have worked to improve water services for the residents of Fayette and Owen Counties. A recent Fayette County project included the design of approximately 2,000 lineal feet of 24-inch watermain, a 2-million- gallon elevated storage tank, and calibration of a KY-Pipe 2000 model of the entire Fayette Urban County Government Service Area, which has a population of about 300,000.
The current service area has an average day demand of 40 million gallons and a maximum day demand of 70 million gallons. This modeling and design project increased storage capacity within the main service area, which provides time to jump-start storage facilities in case of a power loss at either of the two water treatment plants. We also completed a Phase I environmental assessment and provided appraisal services for the tank site.
