KC provided the conceptual upgrade plan, design, preparation of contract documents, and engineering services during construction and startup.

Key project components included:

  • Tower Drive (low pressure system): 2M gallon tank (76 feet diameter and 59 feet high) and 1M gallon tank (54 feet diameter and 59 feet high);
  • Inwood Road (low pressure system): 2M gallon tank (86 feet diameter and 47 feet high);
  • Overhill Road (low pressure system): 1M gallon tank (60 feet diameter and 51.5 feet high);
  • Connors Road (high pressure system): 2M gallon tank (96 feet diameter and 39 feet high) and 1M gallon tank (68 feet diameter and 38 feet high); and
