CBCWA Central Storage Facility

Ledgeview, WI back to portfolio

Since 2007, Central Brown County Water Authority (CBCWA) has purchased water from the City of Manitowoc and Manitowoc Public Utilities (MPU) and delivers that water to roughly 75,000 users within the six member communities of City of De Pere, Villages of Allouez, Bellevue and Howard, and Towns of Lawrence and Ledgeview.
To address several issues and shortfalls, design began on a Central Storage Facility that would provide 11.75 million gallons of backup water storage.

  • A 3.75 mg prestressed concrete standpipe tank, 80’ diameter, 100’ tall and wrapped with 295 miles of high tensile reinforcing wire, provides backup water to Ledgeview and Bellevue.
  • An 8.0 mg ground storage tank, 166’ diameter, 50’ tall and wrapped with 332 miles of wire, provides backup water to the remaining four member communities.
  • A booster pump station provides additional emergency supply to Ledgeview and Bellevue.
