Ludington, MI, officials are seeking a contractor for a 10-year maintenance and asset program for a 500,000-gallon water storage tank.

The interior will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Near-White finish (SSPC-SP 10) and lined with an epoxy system. The exterior will be abrasive pressure washed to 4,000 psi, and spot hand- and power tool-cleaned to SSPC-SP 2 and SP 3 and recoated.

The remainder of the contract years will primarily involve inspection services and as-needed repairs, including touch-up coating, bio-film removal every three years, washouts, disinfection and the elimination of thermal stratification.

The tank was painted in 2001 by M.K. Painting for $47,000.
