Water Storage Tank Maintenance — Waterford, Connecticut

The Town of Waterford's Utility Commission is responsible for the maintenance of their distribution system, including two elevated spheroid storage tanks. The town retained LEI to assist them with developing contract documents for the maintenance and repainting of the Vauxhall Street water tank.

LEI worked closely with the town to develop technical specifications for the re-coating of this 300,000-gallon tank. Because the tank was initially coated with lead based paint, a detailed lead abatement and sampling program was incorporated into the specifications.

LEI also obtained a DEEP general permit for the disposal of Water Treatment Wastewater which was necessary to discharge the disinfected tank water to the sanitary sewer system.
