Beverly Park Tank

The project is currently in the final design phase and scheduled for construction in fall 2019.

What & Why

Beverly Park Tank is a 2,000,000-gallon water tank owned by Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) that serves customers in southwest Seattle, North Highline, and Burien. It is located in North Highline neighborhood near the intersection of 4th Avenue S.W. and S.W. 112th Street.

SPU is planning to paint the inside and outside of the tank to extend its service life and help preserve water quality. In addition, SPU will perform upgrades to help maintenance crews work more safely.

Beverly Park Tank Improvements Project construction may take up to one year to complete. Work will involve:

  • Installing temporary construction support within the site where the tank is located
  • Constructing scaffolding to fully enclose the tank within a containment system
  • Removing paint, which will take place within the tank containment system and the paint removal process will be noisy
  • Priming the tank and repainting the tank to closely match the current color
  • Removing the temporary scaffolding and tank covering
  • Repairing or replacing structural elements of the tank

Water services to homes and businesses will not be impacted or affected during the work.

Homes and businesses will continue to receive water services during construction. You can expect:

  • General construction noise with increased noise during paint removal work
  • Scaffolding and tank covering
  • Increased traffic in and out of the tank site
  • Brief, temporary traffic impacts

The T-Mobile cell tower located on top of the tank will be temporarily removed and replaced once work is complete. During construction, you may see a temporary cell tower near the tank.
