Rehabilitating Del City's Clearwell

Garver recently provided engineering and construction administration services to repair a water treatment plant clearwell in Del City, Oklahoma. The 2.5 million gallon finished water clearwell had deteriorated, and leaks were negatively impacting the city's water production.

After draining the clearwell, an elastomer (a material with rubber characteristics) approved for potable water use was used to seal exterior and interior joints and cracks.

In addition, the clearwell's roof slab was badly spalling. Garver's design prioritized the damaged areas for repair, and a sealing material was applied to restore the existing surface. The resultant topcoat acts as a barrier to help prevent further concrete deterioration.

Garver's services included design, formation of plans and specs, bidding assistance, and construction administration.
