Ribbon cutting for Plymouth’s new reservoir



City officials cut the ribbon recently on the city’s newest water reservoir, with (left to right) Don Albright of Kapur & Associates, Public Works Director and City Engineer Bill Immich, City Administrator and Plymouth Utilities Manager Brian Yerges, Mayor Donald Pohlman, John Grosskreutz of Kapur & Associates and Plymouth Utilities Water Foreman Steve Nordwig. Construction was completed last October on Plymouth’s newest water reservoir, the first built by the city since 1941. The reservoir is a tilt up concrete structure that was designed by Kapur & Associates of Milwaukee. Construction began in August of 2014. The walls were constructed of concrete panels that were formed and poured on the ground then tilted up into position. A total of 18 panels were made. The roof of the reservoir was also fashioned using concrete panels. After the joints of each panel were sealed the tank was wrapped with 17.3 miles of steel cable. The cable was then coated with a concrete grout and finished. The outside walls were painted to add a visual arch feature. The tank was filled, no leaks were found and in October the reservoir was connected to the City water supply. The project received a Concrete Design Award from the Wisconsin Ready Mixed Concrete Association for Tilt Up construction projects. The new reservoir is located directly north of the existing reservoirs and can be best viewed from the west end of Main Street. The new reservoir ensures adequate fire protection for years to come as well as storage capacity for future growth.
