Tank’s a lot



The city’s newest water reservoir is taking shape on the hill off Summit Street on the city’s west side. Crews installed the walls on the 800,000 gallon tank last weekend (below) and earlier this week put the dome panels in place on the roof of the structure (cover, above and left). The concrete panels - 40 tons each for the side wall panels and 10-15 tons each for the dome panels - were cast in place on the site, poured in stacked beds, according to project manager John Grosskreutz of Kapur and Associates. The new tank is located next to the city’s two existing reservoirs and will more than double the water storage capacity for Plymouth Utilities. The last tank was built in 1942. The two existing tanks have only five feet of exposure above ground, but the new tank will have about 15 feet of exposure and the concrete sides will be painted with arches as detail.
