Mannington Water Tank

The City of Mannington owns and operates three water storage tanks which supply potable water to their 909 customers. The City has contracted Thrasher to address the condition of their oldest tank. The 300,000-Gallon Burt Hill tank was constructed in 1964 and is a welded steel, lead painted tank that is in a deteriorating condition. The concrete foundation has loose and exposed aggregate with significant cracking, and the steel is pitting and beginning to rust. Besides the worsening condition of the tank, the water consumption of the City has decreased, resulting in a turnover rate below state standards. This tank has a resale customer and many residential and commercial customers that directly depend on its ability to provide potable water.
