Abstract/Artist Statement

The City of Oakdale is an agricultural and food production town located in Stanislaus County. Since 2006, the City’s population has increased by over 30% and is now nearing 21,000 people. In order to meet the current and future peak water demands of its citizens, the City of Oakdale needs to increase its municipal water storage capacity. This will be done by adding two water storage tanks at opposite ends of the city center at Greger Street and Valley View Drive. Additional supporting elements will also be constructed as need for tank to function as designed. Project goals at the Greger and Valley View Sites include design of a 1.5 million gallon surface-bearing tank, and a 250,000 thousand gallon surface-bearing tank, respectively. Design considerations will include structural, geotechnical, water resources, civil planning, and environmental analysis. Final project deliverables will include structural design of the tanks and foundations, upgrade of the existing pipe network, and development of construction site plans.
