Serving as the District Engineer of Record for the Mayer Domestic Water Improvement District (DWID), Engineered With Layton (EWL) was tasked with the design of a new potable water storage tank in the town of Mayer, AZ. The new storage tank provides an additional 200,000 gallons of water storage capacity to the system and assists to maintain distribution network pressure during warmer and higher demand periods.
EWL designed the tank to be welded per the DWIDs request and would encompass a concrete ring foundation, Tideflex missing system, man-ways and overflow, and be SCADA compatible. After design and obtaining approval through Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, EWL assisted the DWID with the bidding procedures of the tank and recommended a reputable contractor to perform the construction of the tank. EWL performed construction management duties, which included periodical routine inspections of the construction progress and assisting the contractor with any field-related issues. EWL observed the testing, chlorination, and start-up activities of the storage tank and prepared record drawings of the tank.
