Hiawatha Hills Ground Storage Reservoir to be Repainted

Tuesday, August 23 2011 12:00 AM

Hiawatha Hills Ground Storage Reservoir will be renovated over the next 2-3 months. The renovation will include miscellaneous structure repairs, complete removal of the existing coating and repainting.

The existing exterior coating is a lead based paint, and the contractor will be completely encapsulating the tank to capture paint and blasting residue during sandblasting operations.

There will be an informational meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30th at the Public Works Building, 229 Tyler Road North. You can also contact Bob Stark, Deputy Director Public Works - Utilities, by telephone at (651) 385-5112 or by email at with any questions.
