Water Storage Tank Update
of elevated water storage Tank No. 19, located on the north side of 2nd Avenue
between South 5th and 6th Streets in New Hyde Park began earlier this year and is
nearing its final phase. Physical repairs to the tank are complete as well as
the power washing and sandblasting of the interior and exterior of the tank to
remove dirt and old coatings. JPI Painting Inc., who was awarded this
contract is in the process of painting the exterior of the tank. The paint application
that will be used on this water storage tank has been approved by the New York
State Department of Health. This tank has a capacity of approximately
1,265,000 gallons of water and serves the Water Authority’s customers in New
Hyde Park, Bellerose and the northern portion of Floral Park. The
rehabilitation and painting is expected to be complete by October 2015.
