The scope of work for the water tower project includes complete exterior and wet interior sandblast cleaning and repainting. The dry interior is only in need of spot painting repairs and will not be completely overhauled. Due to the proximity of the tower to surrounding private properties, containment (a tent like structure) will be installed over the structure during the blasting and repainting of the water tower to avoid any overspray. In addition to giving the tower a fresh coat of paint and a new look, the contractor will be making repairs to the foundation, roof hatches, tank vents, safety upgrades and roof repairs.
