Taylorsville SRF Water System Improvements
Brandon, Mississippi · Rankin County
A worker in protective gear applied the coating to the inside of the 200,000-gallon elevated water storage tank.
The finished and painted tank bears the logo of Taylorsville Water Association.
With high peak demands during summer months and no elevated storage tanks to supplement supply, the Taylorsville Water Association’s system was running constantly near peak capacity, threatening the loss of minimum pressure needed to prevent contaminants from entering the system. WGK, Inc. developed a facilities plan for the association that called for the addition of a 200,000-gallon elevated tank and a new water main system to improve connectivity for its approximately 700 customers. The project corrected shortcomings in recent pump tests, inspection reports and capacity assessments.
