The North 2 Tank is an important part of the development for Northeast El Paso and El Paso Water. PSC’s Infrastructure Team Leader Mike Ramirez, PE, discusses the project’s process and purpose.
“This project is a major project that will help feed all of Northeast El Paso,” he said. “It will open up several square miles of development for the city and El Paso Water Utilities.”
PSC provided design, bid and construction administration services for the construction of a 3 million gallon composite concrete pedestal and steel water tank in El Paso. The construction also includes excavation and placement of the tank foundation, concrete pedestal and steel tank, cathodic protection system, tank painting, site piping with water main tie-ins, site grading and paving. The tank is adjacent to US Highway 54 and required an access driveway and deceleration lane in TxDOT Right-of-Way to access the site. Site improvements included an overflow basin a rock wall and decorative fencing at the entrance gate.
