Replacing a 100 Year Old Landmark

Age and condition of this landmark ground storage reservoir put it at the top of the city’s capital improvements list.  Replacement was critical because all treated water flows through this tank.

The city of Washington, FOX Engineering, and DN Tanks collaborated to replace the 100-year-old ground storage reservoir.   An article highlighting the project was created by DN Tanks and can be downloaded on this page.  You will also be able to view the article in the September issue of WaterWorld magazine or access it online at
