Athens-Clarke County (GA) officials are soliciting bids for cleaning and recoating the elevated city water tank in Athens, GA.

A pre-bid meeting will be held Oct 30. Bids are due Nov 21.

Scope of Work

The project involves application of an epoxy primer and polyurethane enamel topcoat to all exposed exterior steel components and column pier foundations of the elevated storage tank. The "Athens Tech" logo will require painting on the exterior of the tank shell, replacing the current logo.
