Keller II Water Tower Cleveland Water Department

Cleveland, Ohio

As part of the Cleveland Water Department’s (CWD) General Engineering Services III and IV Contracts, DLZ provided design and construction administration services for an elevated water storage tank in the City of Brunswick to provide additional storage capacity and to address redundancy and capacity issues in the southwestern portion of CWD’s water distribution system.

The project included a 1.0 MG fluted column steel elevated water storage tank with all appurtenances for mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control, and maintenance. Six hundred feet of 16-inch water main extension was required to reach the new tank, along with a cross-connection to the existing feeder water main to balance the flows through the pair of tanks. The site work included a stormwater detention basin to meet the local requirements for stormwater handling. DLZ also developed and prepared a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for the project. Although the new tank was located on a parcel containing an existing water storage tank, it required a significant coordination effort with the local planning and zoning officials due to the proximity of a church, school, and residences. An upgraded, landscaped access boulevard was required for the project, along with screening landscaping.

DLZ provided final design, plans, specifications, and prepared contract documents, facilitated local and state government approvals, and provided construction cost estimating.
