(FAIRFAX, VA – March 27, 2013) – The Dulles South Tanks in Aldie (VA) received the award for Elevated Tank of the Year from the Steel Plate Fabricators Association.

The Dulles South Tanks currently represent the largest installation of elevated water storage at one project site in the Country. They are critical to the long-term planning goals of Loudoun Water, which include increased reliability and redundancy throughout their water distribution system. Successfully bringing these tanks online has improved Loudoun Water’s ability to deliver water to its customers at the proper pressure and quantity and helped Loudoun Water meet their regulatory requirements to provide adequate equalization, emergency, and fire protection water storage.
