The project is currently being advertised for bids. The bid opening is scheduled for April 13, 2017.
Reservoir 21 is a 3-million gallon potable water reservoir located off of SR 3 near the Austin Drive exit. The exterior coating is failing and should be replaced in order to maintain the longevity of the reservoir. The reservoir was last coated on the exterior in 1996. The exterior of the reservoir will be abrasive blasted in entirety and coated with a primer, epoxy coat, and top coat of polyurethane.
The project is fully funded by water rates in 2017.
The project is anticipated to start in early May, which will consist of constructing a scaffold and containment system. Actual blasting and coating will not occur until after June 15, with completion projected for late August.
