The project consisted of the rehabilitation of 5 reservoirs in Lynchburg, VA. The largest of the reservoirs was the College Hill Reservoir, a 10.5-million-gallon tank that was 240’ in diameter. Saffo performed surface preparation to the interior of the tank, 65,000 square feet, to an SSPC SP-10 and applied a 3 coat NSF painting system. In addition, Saffo performed structural steel repairs to the outside of the reservoir including overflow pipe modifications, catch basin installation, bird screen replacements, and removing and replacing door sheet access to the interior of the tank.
