The City owns and operates a water reservoir tank in the SE Redmond Neighborhood near Fire Station 16 and Genie Industries. The steel water tank, built in 1996, is over 60 feet high and has a diameter of over 100 feet. The water tank has a capacity of 4.5 million gallons. After over 20 years, the tank interior and exterior paint surfaces were scheduled for re-coating.
During the construction phase, the tank was drained and disconnected from the City’s water distribution system while seismic upgrades were constructed to bring the tank up to current code. Paint was then applied to the tank interior and exterior, including a new exterior mural. Once completed, the tank was refilled and reconnected to the water distribution system.
