Sellersburg, IN is situated in south central Indiana in Washington County. In 2017 the Silver Creek Water Corporation partnered with Jacobi Toombs & Lanz, Inc. located in New Albany, IN to design a new 2,250,000 gallon reservoir. After researching available options, the project team specified an AWWA D110 Type III prestressed concrete tank because of its long-term durability and low cost of maintenance. Preload, which has designed and constructed prestressed concrete tanks since the 1930’s was selected as the preferred tank builder.
This Preload finished water storage tank has an inside diameter of 140.0’ and a side water depth of 20.0’ and is buried into the side of a hill with only the freestanding dome roof showing. This durable Preload tank will serve the residents of Sellersburg for many decades to come.
