Water Storage Tank Update

Rehabilitation 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.
