Whiteface Water System Improvements – New StandpipeCity of Whiteface Whiteface, Texas
The City of Whiteface contracted PSC to design and build a new water storage tank for the Whiteface Water System Improvements. Their existing elevated storage tank was hit by a tornado in the late 1970s and was not structurally sound to continue operations. As with all West Texas communities, the functionality and reliability of a water tank are critical to the survival of the town.
PSC helped the City of Whiteface secure dual funding sources through the Texas Department of Agriculture and Texas Water Development Board in 2018 and the project moved forward to the design phase in 2019. Construction of the project began in September 2019 and was completed in December 2019.
PSC designed a standpipe, which minimizes the footprint of the project while still allowing for ample water storage capacity. At maximum capacity, this tank stores 103,000 gallons. The new standpipe proudly stands at 122 feet above the West Texas plains and is a beacon for the City of Whiteface.
