The proposed Kachina Water Storage tank is a 250,000 gallon below grade concrete tank. The tank will connect to the existing Village of Taos Ski Valley potable water distribution system. The site is located at an approximate elevation of 10,500 feet; the terrain is heavily vegetated with an approximate 20 percent grade. The Work includes a 900 linear foot extension of 8 inch ductile iron pipe waterline connecting the existing distribution system to the proposed tank. Work also includes installation of fiber and electrical conduits paralleling the waterline and construction of approximately 1050 linear feet of gravel access road. A below grade concrete control vault, located adjacent to the water storage tank, will house isolation and control valves. The control valves will be integrated into the existing SCADA system. Pressure sensors at the tank will control the tank levels and filling of the tank from the existing Kachina booster pumps.
