Water Tank Painting & Repair

The approved 2020 Capital Water & Sewer Budget includes funding for painting and maintenance of the west 6-million gallon water tank located at Station #16, which is located south of the Wilke-Kirchhoff Detention Basin.  The work got underway this spring and the tank is expected to return to service on August 7, 2020. 

The project includes the replacement of many of the center row roof panels and painting of the interior and exterior. In addition to this work, the second 6-million gallon water tank at Station 16 will be touched up to extend the coating's useful life. New coatings can be expected to last up to 25 years and help extend the life of the tank.
