[ARCHIVED] Illinois American Water to Rehabilitate Water Storage Tank

Illinois American Water is rehabilitating the Chicago Metro water storage tank on Pebble Creek Court. The 250,000 gallon elevated tank was originally constructed in 1990. The water tank will be taken out of service to complete the necessary work, which includes inspection and maintenance to the tank as well as painting to the interior and exterior. 

Tank painting will be completed under a canvas shroud to ensure debris and paint does not escape. The old paint will be sandblasted off and then a primer coat will be applied immediately to prevent rusting. Crews will then paint an intermediate coat before applying a third and final coat.

Water service will not be significantly affected by this project. At the most, customers may notice a slight variation in water pressure as a result of the tanks being out of service. The quality of the water flowing to customers' homes and businesses will not be affected and will continue to meet all federal and state water quality regulations.

The tank renovations are expected to be completed by the end of the year. Once the work is completed, the tanks will be inspected and placed back in service.
