D&B provides complete services for both elevated and ground level water storage tanks, both new construction and rehabilitation of existing tanks. This includes semi-annual sanitary inspections, as required by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), and Initial Condition Assessment Inspections, which identify long-term tank maintenance needs.

Rehabilitation

Water storage tank rehabilitation requires detailed knowledge of the sophisticated coating systems and applicable regulatory requirements. Interior coating systems are typically specified to be 100 percent solids, containing no volatile organic compounds. This is necessary to prevent the leaching of contaminants from the newly applied coating system into the potable drinking water being stored. The tank exterior must be completely shrouded to prevent the migration of surface preparation waste and coating overspray onto neighboring properties.

Training

The expertise of our tank engineers regarding the complex techniques required for surface preparation and coating application originates with training by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE). Our Engineers also have been trained for climbing safety, a critical issue associated with elevated tank rehabilitation and inspection.

Services:

  • Preparation of an Engineering Design Report for submittal to the presiding regulatory agencies for new tanks.
  • Preparation of detailed plans and specifications for bidding purposes.
  • Construction management and inspection services.
  • Environmental permitting construction related to a new tank installation.

Cellular Expertise

D&B’s extensive experience includes development of the standards which cellular companies are required to incorporate into designs when installing cellular systems on elevated water storage tanks.

D&B provides review services of installation drawings and advises on mounting methods, addressing the prevention of the advancement of corrosion of the tanks and enabling ease of maintenance.
