Project Spotlight: Painting and Blasting the Eastgate Reservoir

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

On February 6, 2012, Cor-Ray began an interesting and impressive project. Hired by Walnut Valley Water, Cor-Ray was chosen for retrofitting, painting and blasting two multi-million gallon tanks in the Eastgate Reservoir. The work was completed in just under three months - an impressive timeframe for such an large project. Cor-Ray is a contractor in California that excels at a variety of different industrial contracting work, as seen in their work on the Eastgate Reservoir.

The first step of the Eastgate Reservoir project involved retrofitting the two tanks with concrete footings and seismic anchors. This was no small task, as the tanks held 1.5 and 4.4 million gallons of water respectively. Once this was completed, Cor-Ray then blasted the coatings of the two tanks. The coating on both the interior and exterior needed blasting. 

This work was especially sensitive, as the existing coatings were lead based (for more information on lead-based paint detection and removal, click here). Thus, the work had to be properly contained for the safety of the environment, the water, and the workers. Once the preparation was finished, the exterior and interior received painting. A three coat paint system was used for both inside and out. The project was completed on May 4, 2012 - just under three months from start to finish.
