Rehabilitating a 500,000-Gallon Leg Water Tank in Park Forest, IL

Rehabilitating a 500,000-Gallon Leg Water Tank in Park Forest, IL

By: Rob Burckley, Induron Technical Sales and Service Representative

Water tanks often require rehabilitation due to various factors that affect their structural integrity and functionality over time. One key reason is corrosion, which can occur due to the exposure of tank materials to water and environmental elements, leading to deterioration of the tank’s surface and structural components. This corrosion weakens the tank’s ability to contain water safely and efficiently. This is often when a team steps in to rehabilitate the water tank. By undergoing rehabilitation, water tanks can be restored to optimal condition, ensuring reliable water storage, improved water quality, and extended lifespan of the infrastructure. A 500,000-gallon elevated water tank in Park Forest, Illinois was in need of rehabilitation for these exact reasons.
