Located in north-central Montana, the City of Havre is located in a geography that sees summer temperatures over 100°F (38°C) and winter temperatures that can plunge as low as -40°F (-40°C) accompanied by sustained arctic winds of over 20 mph. These dramatic swings in temperature can wreak havoc on disinfectant levels in the summer by creating a “stratified” tank environment conducive to pathogen growth and allow for ice formation in the tank during the winter. Ice formation can lead to tank coating and appurtenance damage as large chunks of ice can suddenly drop from a higher tank elevation and create catastrophic tank damage. The City of Havre realized that adding simple mechanical mixing to their newly refurbished 3.5 MG West Water Tank would solve both the potential summer water quality and winter asset protection issues.
