DCI is assisting the Town of Harwich with the completion of a new ground-based water tank that will replace the 172-foot elevated storage tank that has projected above the tree line for more than 30 years. The new tank, which will hold one million gallons of water, will be a lot less conspicuous, rising up only 36 feet. The concrete tank, wrapped with an inner steel coating, was completed in 2017. The 30-year-old elevated tank is scheduled to be taken down shortly after the new tank is complete.The initial plan was to rehabilitate the elevated storage tank after an inspection cited serious corrosion of the steel structure. But the $2.21 million rehabilitation cost was much higher than the water department had estimated, so it determined that a new tank was preferable.DCI designed the new tank, managed the public bidding process, oversaw construction and served as resident engineer on the process.
