In January of 2010 Company personnel inspected the interior of the 1/2 million gallon tank off of Old Highway 80. As a result, coating repairs were made through the use of spot sand blasting and epoxy patch coating. The Company strives to do as much work as possible in-house thereby reducing the cost to it’s customers. In addition to the coating repairs, there was also valve replacement work conducted at the tank. The tank was placed back in service in May. The Company schedules this type of inspection or maintenance on an annual basis to at least one of the Company’s four steel tanks. Pro-active and preventative maintenance allows the Company to keep it’s storage tanks in good condition thereby extending their expected life expectancy which saves the Company financially as well.
We recently replaced a 150′ section of 6″ steel pipe which spans Pine Creek Canyon. The original structure was constructed in 1960. The pipeline transfers water from three of our meadow wells to the rest of the Meadow Well Field and then on to our Distribution System. The new pipe has an internal epoxy coating to ensure its longevity and strength. Company personnel participated in the project, along with our contractor, Hidden Valley Pump Systems Inc., in an effort to keep the cost of the project as low as possible. Below are some pictures of the job as it was in progress.
As part of our ongoing upgrades, a commercial service line and meter was replaced at the Mountain Market shopping center. Replacement work was done at night as not to adversely affect the business operations of our customers.
