The Goshen and Benson Water Tank Rehabilitation project involves replacing the existing Benson standpipe on Fire Tower Rd. and painting and rehabilitating the Goshen ground storage tank. A pump station will also be replaced, and a half mile of 4-inch waterline will be constructed to loop an existing dead-end water line within the Benson Mountain water distribution system.
Why is it important?
The water tank rehabilitation will improve water quality and create additional capacity in the area. Eliminating dead-end lines will also improve fire flows and allow for continued service during a water main break.
What is the current status?
This project is in the design phase. Hawkins-Weir Engineers, Inc. was selected in a formal engineering selection committee meeting in July 2017, and design should be complete by the end of 2018.
When is completion expected?
The improvements will be in service by late 2019.
How was this project funded?
The Utilities Department budgeted funds within the Benson Mountain Pressure Plane Upgrade project.
