Groundbreaking on Owens Elevated Storage Tank

On Tuesday, May 21st, 2024, Aqua WSC, in collaboration with Quiddity Engineering and the Owens family, proudly broke ground on the Owens Elevated Storage Tank. This significant project honors Fred “Alan” Owens, a dedicated Aqua WSC employee for 18 years.

Alan joined Aqua WSC in 1998 as a meter reader, quickly excelling in the electronics field. He was promoted to Systems Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Manager, where he managed the telemetry systems and operations of Aqua WSC’s water production, storage, and pumping systems. Alan’s expertise and commitment were instrumental to our company’s success.

After a courageous battle with multiple myeloma cancer, Alan sadly passed away in 2016. His loss left a profound void in our hearts. When the opportunity arose to honor his memory by naming this project after him, we were thrilled. The Owens Elevated Storage Tank stands as a testament to his enduring legacy.

Located off Highway 95 in the Camp Swift area, the Owens Elevated Storage Tank will stand 150 feet tall and hold 1 million gallons of water. The project is scheduled for completion in September 2025.

We invite you to follow the progress of this project by visiting our website and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Join us as we honor Alan’s legacy and advance our community’s water infrastructure.
