As part of Edmond’s Water and Wastewater Master Plan, a number of recommended improvements are being implemented. One of the more noticeable projects is the new NW Water Tower. This water tower is designed to hold two million gallons of water, which is four times the amount of the other water towers in Edmond. It is located at the corner of Coffee Creek and Boulevard.
As Edmond continues do grow, so does the need for water storage. Water
towers are designed to help balance the water system during the day when
peak water usage occurs. This project will help the Northwest part of
Edmond experience fewer pressure fluctuations and better our water
system as a whole. Other water tower projects are planned in the future
as recommended in the Master Plan.
The NW Water Tower project began June 10, 2016 and is for completion in September 2017. Landmark Structures is the contractor for the project with a total cost of $5,893,000.
December 2016 Update: The concrete pedestal is nearly complete which equates to roughly 50% of the Water Tower. The steel bowl that holds the water will be fabricated on the ground over the next month and lifted into place in the next couple of months.
