New Tower in Southwest Section of City 

The City of Minot’s southwest elevated water storage tank project has earned an award from the North Dakota Ready Mix & Concrete Products Association.  

The $4 million project earned the Gold Star Winner award in the Governmental Category. The tower project was completed in conjunction with Landmark Structures, Houston Engineering, and Strata Corporation. 

“This was an important project in the City’s overall water master plan because we knew we had to increase our storage capacity to keep up with the growth in the southwest part of Minot,” City of Minot Public Works Director Dan Jonasson said. “We had great contractors, and we’re pleased that this project, which was completed ahead of schedule, has earned this recognition.”  

The 1.5 million gallon tank went online in the spring of 2022. It will help accommodate ongoing residential and commercial growth in southwest Minot and create sustained water pressure and volume in the City’s South Hill pressure zone for fire flow purposes. Sixty percent of the funding was provided by a grant from the North Dakota State Water Commission.  

The award was presented at the association’s 2023 convention in Bismarck in January.
