Water Reservoir

Floating covers are recommended—and in many cases legislated—for use in drinking water reservoirs to protect the water from being contaminated by rainwater, dirt, bird droppings, dead animals, leaves, and acts of vandalism. Floating covers also protect drinking water from sunlight, preventing evaporation and the growth of algae and other unwanted organisms. MPC has designed, fabricated and installed floating reservoir covers in numerous locations in the United States. International applications include India, Israel, France and Kwajelain.

Featured Installation: The City of Aberdeen in Washington

The city of Aberdeen, Washington wanted to upgrade their water treatment system. A major improvement was the installation of a floating membrane cover to keep debris and other contaminants out of their 15 million gallon reservoir. MPC fabricated and installed this cover in 2002, and a smaller one in 2003, using Reinforced Polypropylene material in both cases. This project is unique because the reservoir required Baffle Curtains under the cover to direct the flow of water and ensure proper chlorine contact time. The Baffle Curtains had to maintain their performance despite the fluctuation of the cover due to changes in water level.
