West Reservoir Painting, Burnet, Texas

The 400,000-gallon West Reservoir was taken out of service and bypassed using manual controls. A spider-ring assembly on the interior of the reservoir had corroded and collapsed within the tank. This assembly was needed for initial construction of the tank only and 30 years had passed since construction. The collapsed assembly was removed and the interior of the tank was sandblasted and painted with a high-quality potable water paint system. During renovation, the hatch entrance and tank manway were replaced with larger units to meet new Texas Commission on Environmental Quality criteria. The exterior roof received a light overcoat to enhance aesthetics after removing rust streaks along seams.

Services Provided: Final Design and Bid Documents, Bid Phase Services, and Construction Phase Services including several on-site inspections at critical painting sequence steps.
