City of York

Water Tower Rehabilitation

York, NE

Benesch supplied the design, permitting, contract administration and construction management services for the two-tank rehabilitation project. This tower is known for its “hot air balloon” artistic painting welcoming visitors to the City, and an icon often used by the City for promotional purposes.

Benesch prepared technical specifications and bid documents to complete the new painting and epoxy coating (inside and out), safety upgrades and a new mixing system for two elevated tanks. Special consideration was given to operational schedule during sandblasting and painting as both tanks could not be offline at the same time.

All specifications met NSF/ANSI Standard 61, AWWA and OSHA safety standards.
