Just southwest of Sugar Land, TX, near the Brazos River, Phoenix constructed a 2,000,000-gallon Composite Elevated Tank (CET) for the City of Sugar Land, TX. Illuminated at night by logo lighting, the tank stands proudly overlooking passers-by along Interstate 69. The tank wears the City logo in contrasting blue on a white background against the smooth concrete finish of the support pedestal. Coming up over the Brazos River levee lies a concrete approach through a gate and surrounding decorative fence.
The tank is built upon auger-cast piles topped by a pile cap foundation and a 52 ft. diameter concrete pedestal supporting the steel container. The tank features a hydrodynamic mixing system incorporated into the piping system. Additionally, the pedestal contains a second structural floor accessed by a spiral staircase from the base of the tank and an internal hoist for raising and lowering storage from floor to floor.
