Concrete Storage Tanks

Concrete ReservoirConcrete tanks present special challenges as rehabilitation options and costs vary widely depending on the type of tank and amount of deterioration. Unlike steel tanks that can be restored to a nearly new condition with thorough surface preparation and painting, concrete tanks usually require a targeted approach that minimizes further deterioration in a cost effective manner. Unlike steel tanks that are damaged through localized corrosion, concrete structures suffer from cracking, spalling and differential settlement. This deterioration can often lead to water supply contamination if not repaired.

Dixon provides a comprehensive range of services for the inspection, maintenance and rehabilitation of concrete storage tanks. As with steel water storage tanks, Dixon initially performs a preliminary maintenance inspection to assess structural, safety, public health and coating conditions. An inspection report with photographs is then provided with repair recommendations and associated budget estimates.
