As part of OCWA’s dedicated maintenance program for our water storage facilities, we recently performed exterior cleaning of the following four elevated water storage tanks:

1) Hidden Knolls (Town of Camillus)

2) Liverpool (Village of Liverpool)

3) Constantia (Town of Constantia)

4) Limeledge (Town of Skaneateles)

The cleaning not only involved cosmetic improvements to the exterior surfaces resulting from the removal of foreign debris, surface oxidation and mildew, but it will also help preserve the approximate 20-year life expectancy of the paint coatings.

After the tank surfaces were cleaned, the surfaces were treated with a mildew inhibitor to reduce the effects from the tank environment, seasonal changes, condensation and blowing debris.

Below are before and after pictures of the Hidden Knolls Tank.
