Woodlands Park Ground Storage Tank

Location: St. Peters, Mo.

Client: City of St. Peters

Completion Date: December 2006

The City of St. Peters retained Burns & McDonnell to design a 1.5 million gallon ground-level storage tank and a 3-million-gallon-per-day (MGD) booster pump station. This facility will be located in the Woodlands Sports Park and will provide a source of additional pressure and water supply in the northwestern part of the city.

The booster station will have three pumps and space for an equally-sized future pump. Each pump will be rated at 1,050 gpm. The building housing the pump station will be constructed to match the existing park buildings.

The 1.5 million gallon water storage tank will be a precast concrete, wire wound type with pilasters to match the existing park buildings. The tank will be 95 feet in diameter and 30 feet tall and will feature a concrete, domed roof.

The project also includes a radio telemetry and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that will allow monitoring and control from the water treatment plant. The basic operation will include the filling of the tank in off-peak usage periods by an electrically controlled butterfly valve and use of the pumps to maintain flow and pressure during peak usage periods.
