The original elevated tank was replaced with this 500,000 gallon tank, improving water service and fire protection for the citizens of Bonham.

Our Solution

Hayter Engineering prepared the application for Bonham to apply to the Texas Water Development Board for a low interest loan from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for a new 500,000 gallon elevated tank to improve fire protection and improve the water service to their customers. The demolition of an existing 400,000 gallon elevated tank was performed after the new elevated tank was put into service.

The new 6 column Toro-Ellipsoidal welded steel elevated tank was erected in place with foundation and piping, interior and exterior painting, electrical, site work, fencing, landscaping, and SCADA system and controls.

This project was part of a larger $7,355,000 project, which also included: coating and repair of the DeRose elevated tank and two ground storage tanks; a new high service booster pump station facility; two contracts for water distribution mains; material procurement for repair of streets cut for water line installations; water meters procurement; water meter installation & Fixed-Read AMI System; and coating/repair of the Silo Road ground storage tank and Silo Road elevated tank.
