PERRYSBURG - A one million gallon water tank was hoisted into place behind the Department of Public Services on Roachton Road on July 4 by workers from  CB&I Constructors, Inc. from Plainfield, Ill.
The tank will improve water pressure in the area and increase capacity.
It is the first phase in a project to upgrade two water tanks in the city.
Once work is finished on Roachton Road - expected to be completed by December - tank work will begin on the tank on Fort Meigs Road near the CSX tracks. Expected completion of the Fort Meigs Road tank is May
2015.
Upon completion of the projects, an additional 1,750,000 gallons of water will be available for Perrysburg customers.
The cost of the projects is  $4,475,000.
The existing tanks along I-75 and on Fifth Street in town contain 1.5 million and 250,000 gallons, respectively.
The new tanks are composite style tanks, cast on concrete pedestals with a steel bowl to contain the water. The bowl is completely assembled on the ground then jacked into place. It will take about three hours to lift the bowl to its final position, 130 feet above the ground.
Arcadis Inc of Toledo is the design engineer for the project and Bowser Morner, also from Toledo, provided soils and materials testing services. Dixon Engineering from Medina specializes in water tank inspection and is monitoring the fabricating, welding, cleaning, and painting of the steel bowls.
Perrysburg purchases water from the City of Toledo and pumps it from two underground storage reservoirs to the four elevated tanks. The tanks provide the water pressure and convey the water through almost 100 miles of water main.
