Bartlesville is located in Northeast Oklahoma, about 50 miles north of Tulsa. In 2009, the City of Bartlesville hired consulting engineering firm Tetra Tech, Pasadena, CA, for a water storage tank project. After researching available alternatives, the project team specified an AWWA D110 Type III wire-wound prestressed concrete tank because of its reliability, durability, and negligible maintenance requirements. Preload, a recognized innovator in the concrete storage tank industry, was selected as the preferred tank builder.
This Preload tank holds 4.0 MG of water, and has a 130’ inside diameter and a 40’ side water depth. Its exterior is enhanced with an arched pilaster architectural treatment. In addition to providing communities with trouble-free water storage, Preload offers a wide range of exterior tank colors and geometric alternatives to suit a community’s aesthetic needs.
