Construction for the new Town of Minden 2.5 million gallon water tank is in progress on the east side of the Carson Valley. RCI completed the design and permitting for this key component of the Regional Water System. Once completed, the Regional Water System will connect the Town of Minden, greater Douglas County, Indian Hills GID, and Carson City.
In this photo, V&C Construction, a local contractor, has graded the tank site and prepared the subgrade for NATGUN, the tank company. A unique construction technique will be used to erect the tank; the concrete tank panels are cast in place and tilted in place with a crane and the dome top is cast in place on the walls. The area around the tank will be backfilled and revegetated to decrease the visual impact on the site as much as possible.
