Water Tower Painting Project Commences

The City of East Providence Department of Public Works, Water Utilities Division, announces the commencement of the painting of the One Million Gallon Water Tank located at the Kent Heights Water Storage Facility.

The contractor, Atlas Painting, has mobilized on the site and has commenced installation of scaffolding for the containment system. The project includes relocation of antennae and equipment, repairs to the tank, sand blasting and painting of both the interior and exterior. Work will continue through the fall and is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year, weather permitting.

We would like to thank the neighboring residents of the Kent Heights Water Storage Facility for their patience and understanding during the recent construction of the new concrete water tank and as we work to complete the painting and rehabilitation of the elevated tank.
