CVWD recognized for work on welded steel reservoir

Steel tank of the year

The Coachella Valley Water District was recently awarded a 2017 Steel Tank of the Year award for a 6.5 million gallon steel reservoir in Thousand Palms.

The award was from STI/SPFA, a trade association representing fabricators of steel construction products and their suppliers. CVWD was one of two recipients for the award, chosen from entries from across the country in this category.

The welded steel tank in Thousand Palms was designed to meet the water demands of CVWD’s current customers as well as provide supplemental water storage to meet the future demand of additional housing developments.

The tank, which weighs more than 1.2 million pounds, was designed to be as cost effective as possible but the design reflects extra precautions because the tank is located approximately 1 mile south of the San Andreas Fault line.

STI/SPFA member companies produce steel storage tanks, field erected water tanks, pressure vessels and heat exchangers, and pipe and pipelines. Their customers are from the petrochemical, power generation, food, pharmaceutical, fuels, wastewater and water transmission industries.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
