New Water Tank Increases Capacity for Community
The Paulding County Water System, as a part of its development of the Richland Creek Reservoir project and expansion of its internal water system, sought to increase capacity at the existing Macland Road facility for present and future water storage capacity. The Paulding County Macland Road site consisted of the layout of 675 linear feet of 24-inch-diameter Ductile Iron Pipe (DIP) header system connecting to an existing 14-inch DIP waterline along Macland Road. It also involved the installation of a 24-inch-diameter cross with valving for future distribution waterlines along Macland Road, as well as a header system for the first tank under this project with allowance for future tankage.
As a part of the project, Croy also established a new entrance roadway for present and future access to the tank site. The team also installed an initial 1-million-gallon ground storage potable water concrete tank with associated potable water supply infrastructure capable of handling future flow to the site, as well as supporting stormwater and stormwater control systems, including detention and control ponding.
