Fort Wainwright Water Storage Tanks

CLIENT Doyon Utilities

Location Fort Wainwright, AK

Fort Wainwright was first established in 1939 as the US Army Air Corps Ladd Field adjacent to Fairbanks. In 1961, it was transferred to the Army and re-designated as Fort Wainwright.

Approximately 15,000 people live and work on post and obtain drinking water from both private and public water supply wells. Doyon Utilities maintains the Fort Wainwright potable water distribution and is currently constructing two 500,000-gallon water storage tanks, a pumphouse, and supporting waterlines. Since 2015, we have been assisting Doyon Utilities with geotechnical and environmental services for the project.

Our services included geotechnical design and implementation of ground improvements using deep dynamic compaction methods, gaining ADEC and EPA approval of sampling and analysis plans for exploration and construction, two years of construction observation and consultation to assist with the segregation of waste streams, agency consultation, and waste disposal.
