Comment | More

The City of Winter Haven, FL, is seeking proposals from contractors to clean, blast and recoat a 150,000-gallon elevated water storage tank.

Bids are due Wednesday (Sept. 25). A pre-bid meeting was held Sept. 10.

Scope of Work

This project involves removing coatings, cleaning and recoating surfaces of the existing steel water storage tank. The interior surfaces will be abrasive blast cleaned to SSPC-SP 10 (near white) and lined with a zinc epoxy-urethane system.

Bids for painting the 150,000-gallon tank are due next week.

The exterior will be cleaned and coated with a three-coat epoxy-urethane system.

The tank was previously inspected in 2009, and structural repairs recommended in that report will be completed before coating. The city may elect to hire a coatings inspector to monitor this project.

The city also notes:

  • Cellular equipment located on site cannot be taken out of service;
  • The contractor is required to protect all cellular apparatuses and should clean the surfaces of this equipment using water with a mild detergent, industrial-grade isopropyl alcohol, or acetone;
  • The owner will conduct a coatings inspection 11 months after the project is completed; and
  • Antennas should be protected, but not painted.

About the City

The city of Winter Haven was a Major League Baseball spring training site for many years, hosting the Philadelphia Phillies, the Boston Red Sox and, most recently, the Cleveland Indians, who left in 2008.
