Fayette Water Tower
As the City of Fayette’s City Engineer, we were charged with the planning and design of a new elevated water tower to facilitate improved delivery of the potable water supply into the distribution system through increased storage capacity, improved flow, and stabilization of pressures. An immediate benefit was enhanced fire protection capability provided by the additional storage and operability of the system. The 500,000 Gallon Single Pedestal Storage Tank was located to provide the best meet the needs of the area served by the new tank. Hydraulic calculations proved the tank would provide optimum functionality at this location, floating with the city’s existing elevated tanks, and improving pressures and flows within the system.
