City of Yonkers Nodine Hill Elevated Water Storage Tank Rehabilitation
Constructed in 1938 and last renovated in the late 1980s, the Nodine Hill elevated water storage tank holds one million gallons of water and is a vital asset to the City of Yonkers’ water distribution system. However, the aging tank’s deteriorating coatings system and a need to invest in protecting critical infrastructure led the City to commission a complete rehabilitation of the tank that included fully removing the existing coating system; preparing and painting the tank’s interior and exterior; replacing the overflow pipe, roof access ladder, and tank roof vent; and upgrading the existing electrical service.
D&B was retained to provide construction management and administration services for work performed by contractors during the tank rehabilitation project. Under this assignment, D&B’s responsibilities included attending pre-construction and construction coordination meetings; coordinating activities and information with contractors, vendors, outside agencies and the City’s Water Bureau; performing construction and tank coating inspections; and preparing as-built drawings of all completed work.
