East Division Street Tank

The new 6.4-million-gallon tank and the booster pump station can control the entire PUD water system. How this tank was built, with the advanced technology to ensure it’s longevity, is simply incredible.

For example, the tank is wrapped in almost 40 miles of 3/8” stainless steel cable.

1 gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs.

Which means there are 6,400,00 GALS or 53,376,000 LBS or 26,688 TONS of water pushing on the walls trying to get out!
