A key part of our water distribution system are the water tanks that store water to meet daily peak demands. We monitor our tanks continuously via our computer control systems and inspect our tanks every week. Most of our tanks are made out of thick steel with special epoxy coatings. On a regular basis all tanks are inspected internally either by a complete drain and washout or using a remotely operated submersible vehicle that is specially designed for use in potable water.
All coatings degrade over time, if our inspections show any sort of degradation we schedule the tank for recoating. We have a long-term contract with Suez Inc. to provide this specialized service. Right now we are recoating our Canonita Tank located off of Stewart Canyon Road.
