Storage & Distribution

from tank to tap

After water is produced and treated, it gets to customers' taps via the storage and distribution network of pipes, pumps, booster stations, meters, and tanks. Like any infrastructure system that needs to operate 24/7/365, much careful planning, maintenance, and investment must occur to keep it operating efficiently and within compliance.

storage tanks

Storing water in your system to meet peak demands and provide backup is a must for systems of all sizes. Tanks are the medium to accomplish that task. Tanks can be tricky, requiring maintenance, mixing, and regular inspections to maximize their longevity and usefulness.

water tank mixing

Mixing can help solve a variety of tank water problems, from low chlorine residual and freezing to excessive water age and stratification. Active and passive mixing options and systems each have their individual strengths, weaknesses, pros, and cons, so familiarizing yourself with the options is an important first step. We developed a Water Tank Mixing Guide to help you understand the available options. From there, overlaying your tank and system’s specifications, operations, and situation, with the right data, perspective, and guidance, will help you zero in on the best mixing system for your tank.

We’re here to take the mystery out of tanks. Whether you’re in need of a new tank, mixing system, or rehabilitating an existing system, we can lend clarity to the plethora of options out there, and help you pair the best option to your situation. Our “tankies” have been involved in thousands of tank inspections, and seeing so many tanks of varying styles, materials, and systems, one, 10, or 50 years after construction shines light on what elements of design and maintenance matter most to maximize a tank's life span, and your return on investment.

water storage tank engineering services include:

  • Cathodic protection
  • Mixing systems
  • Permitting & compliance
  • System modeling
  • Tank design
  • Tank rehabilitation

distribution systems

The underground network of pressurized pipes and valves that transports and delivers potable water throughout, may be out of sight and out of mind for your customers, but it needs to be at the forefront of the minds of system owners and managers. As your distribution system ages, maintenance, upgrade projects, and funding are needed to maintain operations and compliance.

Our water engineers understand these complex systems and regulations, and are here to help you make wise decisions as you invest in, or plan for, your system.

water distribution engineering services include:

  • Asset management
  • GIS mapping
  • Metering
  • Permitting & compliance
  • Pump stations
  • Rate studies
  • System modeling
  • UFW (Unaccounted for Water) studies

Water, water, everywhere, so is it safe to drink?

You bet! After all, that is the #1 goal. Keeping it safe from source to tap is no small feat, and new challenges arise daily.

We’re here to help you make smarter decisions and invest wisely as you continue to face those new challenges.
