Camp Smith Water Tank Replacement

August 9, 2017

As part of Chazen’s term services agreement with OGS, Chazen was retained to assist with the replacement of the water storage tank at the Camp Smith Training Site in Cortlandt. Chazen provided engineering design support for the replacement of the existing 500,000-gallon water storage tank with an Aquastore® glass-fused-to-steel tank. In addition to the engineering design of the replacement water storage tank, Chazen also developed a hydraulic model of the existing water system at the facility utilizing WaterCAD software. The water model was used to identify and analyze deficiencies within the distribution system. The model was also used to verify system operation in support of the replacement water storage tank design. Chazen provided improvement suggestions including providing pipe loops to better system hydraulics. In addition, Chazen completed due diligence reviews, including ecological, wetland, coastal zone and archeological sensitivity for replacement of the tank. Chazen also provided SEQR and EAF coordination.
