The Twin 10 Million Gallon Water Reservoirs

The Twin 10 Million Gallon Water Reservoirs at 25th and Ray St. on Spokane's south hill won in

the category of "Best Special Projects". 

When it was determined that the old open reservoir was not satisfactory, the engineers looked to plant cast prestressed concrete as the system to use. 

Using concrete enabled the terrain to be restored to the original "parklike" contours and provided a structure that would not require painting, which is a significant savings over the life of a tank. 

At the time it was built, cost for the tanks was an amazing 13 cents per gallon of storage!
