MO Ground Storage Tank Out for Bid


Springfield City Utilities is seeking contractors for the rehabilitation of the Blackman Wash Water Storage Tank in Springfield, Missouri.

Bids are due May 3; a non-mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held April 23.

Scope of Work

This project involves cleaning and coating the interior and exterior surfaces of an existing 300,000-gallon ground water storage tank.

Contractors will high-pressure waterblast (3,000-5,000 psi) and power-tool clean exterior tank surfaces to SSPC-SP 3 standards. The exterior will then be spot primed with a modified polyamidoamine epoxy and coated with an acrylic-polyurethane topcoat.

An alternative bid item includes priming the exterior surfaces with an epoxy/polyurethane primer/intermediate system and coating with a fluoropolymer topcoat.

Interior tank surfaces will be abrasive blast-cleaned to Near White standards (SSPC-SP 10). The interior surfaces will then be coated with a zinc-rich urethane primer and epoxy finish.

The approved coating manufacturer is Tnemec. Seams will be sealed with Sikaflex-1a.  

Containment of abrasive-blast debris is required.

Springfield City Utilities will supply a third-party inspection firm to perform full-time observation of the repair work, cleaning and painting.

A second-year anniversary inspection shall be performed by the contractor.
