Lakeview Hill water tower painting update

June 6, 2016 9:19 AM

A message from Al Larson at the Water Utility:

Neuman Painting is completing the containment that will allow them to start sandblasting which will lead to painting. The tank paint system is a three coat system. The first coat, the primer, was applied to the steel plate in the shop prior to shipping to the site. Field work on the prime coat will include preparing and priming the well seams and any other area damaged during construction.

The 2nd coat or the intermediate coat will be started this week. We use a contrasting color for each coat of paint to allow the painters to see what has been coated and what has not. The intermediate coat will be a green color. Be assured that this is not the final tank color. It will take several weeks to get the intermediate coat of paint on the tank.

Other work that will be occurring around the Lake View Reservoir is the installation of fiber optic lines for communication and networking. This will happen over the next month or so and will tie the City's antenna's into the fiber network.

Painting is scheduled to take about 12 weeks to complete. It should be finished in August. It will then be followed by site work and filling and disinfecting the reservoir. Scheduled project completion is November 2016.

We invite you to visit our project web page from time to time for additional project information.
