N.G. Painting was awarded a contract to paint and spot repair this 8.5 million-gallon water storage tank in Cedar Hill, TX.

Exterior surfaces will be hand and power-tool cleaned to a White Metal finish (SSPC-SP 11) and coated with a polyurethane system.

Interior surfaces requiring repair will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Near White finish (SSPC-SP 10) and lined with an epoxy system.

The project also includes the installation of a new screen on the existing vent at the top of the tank. The contractor will also repair the interior access ladder on the structure.

The tank will require disinfection following any repair or touch-up services.

About the Structure

The Trinity River Authority also owns and operates five water treatment facilities, five wastewater treatment facilities, a reservoir and recreational projects. They are also the local sponsor of several multi-purpose lakes operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

You have got to be kidding me. Is the contract price a typo? :) Wow is the only word that comes to mind.

My guess is that there are not very many repair spots and it doesn't get a full overcoat.
