Miron Elevated Storage Tank Gets a Face Lift

The elevated storage tank located on Miron Drive is undergoing a makeover!

After conducting several inspections and tank cleaning processes, it was determined that the structure would undergo a renovation.

The City awarded the contract to Viking Industrial Painting to perform renovations and repaint the tank.

The 1.5 million gallon tank was originally constructed in 1999 and stores drinking water for residents. The renovation will help prevent corrosion of the steel and prevent oxidation of the paint.

Renovations include: interior and exterior sandblasting, prime coating and painting. Currently, the project is 90% complete.

By taking this proactive measure to maintain public assets such as the Miron Elevated Storage Tank, the City can continue to provide the highest standards and quality of life for Southlake residents along with safe drinking water.

Renovation is set to be concluded by May 2020. The estimated cost for this project is $623,000.
