Banner Taylor Tanks – Nevada City, CA

Banner Taylor Water Reservoir
Banner Taylor Water Reservoir

Banner Taylor Reservoir formerly consisted of two lined covered reservoirs. Nevada Irrigation District engaged H&K to perform an investigation in preparation for the conversion of the two ponds into two 4.6-million-gallon, concrete, post-tensioned tanks. Based on its investigation, H&K provided foundation recommendations that would mitigate differential settlement of the tanks. H&K also provided observation and materials testing during construction of the tanks. This project received the 2014 Environment (Water) Project of the Year Award from the Sacramento Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA).
