As a design-build contractor, Globaltech built a 2 million gallon (MG) concrete ground storage tank along Pine Island Road in the City of Cooper City.
A new 2 MG storage tank and 4 mgd repump station will be needed in the future to meet future fire flow and storage requirements as a result of annexation of areas into the City of Cooper City’s current service area. The construction of the 2 MG tank was the initial component of the overall project. The tank was constructed first to take advantage of favorable pricing from the manufacturer, Crom.
The new 2 MG GST is an above grade pre-engineered prestressed concrete tank with integral concrete base slab and domed concrete roof. The tank has a nominal diameter of 100′, side water depth of 34′-1″, total overall height of 45′-7″, and a wall thickness of approximately 6”. Tank accessories include side wall manway hatch, dome fiberglass access hatch, tank outlet, interior piped tank overflow line, fiberglass ventilator at dome crest with dormer style screened vents at tank periphery, local level indication via a mechanical fiberglass liquid level indicator on tank exterior for visual level indication, remote level indication via ultrasonic level transmitter, and polypropylene baffle curtain.
