The City of Parker's water demands have increased over the past several years, exceeding their existing equipment capacity. The City's existing 50,000-gallon water tower was inadequate to continuously provide reliable system pressures, particularly for fire-fighting applications. The new and taller water tower increases system pressures throughout the entire distribution system and provides additional volume to fight fires. Water main improvements were also needed to hydraulically connect the new water tower to the City's distribution system and better distribute water into the system. Banner provided design, bidding, construction contact administration, and construction observation services for the City of Parker’s new 250,000-gallon spheroid style water tower. In addition to the new water tower, this project also included the installation of approximately 500' of 10"-diameter PVC water main, and the demolition of the City’s previous 50,000-gallon water tower.
