Repairs to Medina water tank

MEDINA – Andy Eaton with DN Tanks applies the second coat of paint on Medina’s 3-million-gallon water tank today.

DN Tank has painted the tank, and also made several repairs, with more to be done. The water tank was built in 1959 on Route 31A.

The Village Board in April accepted a $899,850 bid from DN Tanks for the work. The company is based in Wakefield, Mass.

The big tank had interior cracks that were identified in a previous inspection when the tank was full of water.

The village opted to repair the tank rather than build a new one. The upgrades are expected to give the water tank at least another 20 years of useful.

DN Tanks workers said they have been working on the tank improvements for about 10 weeks. They are trying to have the project done by Aug. 19.
