Lakeview Reservoir Update from Madison Water Utility

April 6, 2016 10:27 AM

April 6, 2016 update on the Lake View Reservoir construction:

The steel tank erection is coming to an end. A lift of the completed roof plate is planned for Wednesday morning April 13th (weather permitting of course). To accomplish this lift, Landmark is bringing in a 400 ton crane on Tuesday the 12th. There are two lifts planned for Wednesday morning. The first will occur around 8:00 a.m. and will involve the center access tube for the upper tank. This 60-inch diameter 33 foot long tube will form the center of the upper reservoir and provide climbing access to the roof.

The roof lift will be the 60 foot diameter domed steel roof plate weighing close to 20 tons. This lift is anticipated to occur between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. as it rises to approximately 140 feet above the ground. Following the attachment of the roof plate, railings, and antenna brackets will be attached finishing up the erection of the Lake View Reservoir.

Painting of the reservoir is scheduled to begin in May and take about 12 weeks to complete. The painting process is very dependent on the weather. Painting is scheduled to be finished in early August. Final site work, grading and landscaping will occur in September and October. The Cell Carriers will reinstall their equipment on the new tower late this year.

The next two phases of the project will be include the replacement of the water line from Northport Drive and the Esch Lane Connection, scheduled for 2017 and an upgrade of the water booster pumping station located at the end of Lake View Avenue, scheduled for 2018.

We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this major construction project as we update and improve our water supply infrastructure.
