Washington Square Village Water Tank Replacement

New rooftop water tanks are required at Washington Square Village buildings 1, 2, 3, and 4.  


Information for Neighbors


Project Timeline

  • The project will start on or around the week of April 15 and be complete by May 31, 2014.
  • Tanks on buildings WSV 4 and 3 will be replaced first. When this construction is completed (estimated time of one month), the process will begin for WSV 1 and 2.

Scope of Work


  • Replacement begins with demolition of the existing water tanks, followed by the installation of new tanks.
  • The final step in demolition involves decommissioning the existing tanks, a process which will suspend water service for approximately a 12 hour period.
  • Once the precise date of the tank replacement is scheduled, we will post notifications in building lobbies. We will give at least 48 hours notice.
  • Hoists will be installed on the garden-facing facades of WSV 4 from mid-April into May, and on WSV 1 throughout May.
  • When the materials are being delivered or removed via the hoist, traffic along the WSV driveways may be temporarily suspended and/or rerouted to accommodate the lifting.
