Project Status: 
Celestial Ground Storage Tank
Celestial GST

The Celestial ground storage tank (GST) has been operating since 1988. In 2014, a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of the Celestial GST was conducted by Kleinfelder, Inc.. The project scope consists of the structural rehabilitation of the existing ground storage tank, a new storm drainage swale for erosion control, new sidewalks for accessibility, a section of a new security perimeter fence, and other miscellaneous improvements.

On June 11, 2019, a Professional Services Agreement with Kleinfelder, Inc. was executed for design services associated with the Celestial GST improvements. This design was completed in December 2020. The project was posted to CIVCAST for bidding on December 15, 2020, and it was closed on January 14, 2021.

Council awarded a contract with DN Tanks, LLC. for the construction of the rehabilitation project. The project is anticipated to take around four months to complete.
