Everybody is J Warren with another on the clock here in Arlington you know you probably drive by the more than 10 water tanks or at least one of them every single day here in Arlington but did you know there's servicing about 17.5 million gallons of water and a new one. Will soon be built here city manager Trey yelburton with more on those tanks and the crews that are servicing them thanks Jay today I'm out at Tierra Verde one of our elevated storage. Tanks and I'm with Justin Curt Dorper yes one of our civil engineers who's going to talk to us a little bit about what we're doing here today which is pretty interesting it's up there pretty good what do we get what are we gonna do today at the pier very water so today we're. Going to look at tcq requires us to take a look at all that storage tanks once a year so we're gonna go through the checklist and confirm that all the items on that checklist are covered and so that's the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality correct. Right okay and how many of these tanks do we have we have 10 thanks in time yep so James tell us a little bit about what you do on the water system and how you take care of making sure everybody's get good clean safe are we behind secured fences that plans pump stations elevated storage tanks we do all the. Maintenance on small leak repairs to major. How much water sits in this time this is a 1 million gallon tank so there's two two uses for elevated storage versus its doors water or for the system the second one is it maintains pressure in our system well maybe we should go check it out here's the climbing harness it's actually going to step in one foot here one. Slip here are you all set yeah I'm in so climate harness we're gonna hook up to the flower strength with this or with this depending on if we're going up or down so now after about 150. Foot climb up to the top of the chair Verde tank we're on top of Arlington at. The moment one of the thing I Tamar gonna look at all the coating on top of the roof here look for any bad coding coding failures rust and hitting things like that okay so looking all the way out there it's like this would be a good spot absolutely is this coating like an epoxy type. Surface or what what is this yes. There's a defeat this is going to be an epoxy it's typically three layers it's got a primer a center coat and a top coat today we're using a fluoro ethylene top coats which are good for but. Even better for the Sun you know this one it looks like it's actually hitting metal yeah so this might be something where we do want to come back out here and and grind some of this away and get some some temporary coating that the last five ten years so they're not. Long enough for the next cycle of this so what you see here is this is the ladder to get inside of the ball the potable water on the inside and it's part of this inspection we're gonna put a camera down in there to kind of get a look of some of the material to make sure. We're not having any chipping or peeling kind of corrosion and there's gonna be chipping and there's gonna be corrosion yeah it's is it is it still a manifestation right so we take the tank out for a full renovation and then. These things will probably last what 15 20 years before you need to do a cycle I guess that's the that's the. Timeline how has technology improved your ability to do a better inspection on the inside of these elevated storage. Tanks we couldn't look inside the bowl very easily today with a small camera we can put it on a stick disinfect all of that equipment and. Drop it in and watch it real time okay it just makes looking at the inside of the tank how much easier it looks pretty clear amount I'll say any any material on the surface of the water it. Looks pretty clear I don't really see any silt or yep anything like that so that'll be our engine what we'll write down for TCU that was good so I appreciate you guys showing me what you do every. Day it's fun up here on top of Arlington but I know more importantly our residents really appreciate having plenty of water in the shower and plenty clean safe drinking water so on behalf of all of our res is just well thank you. For what you guys do to keep us with good. Water and flowing well thank you for. Your time all right thanks praying thanks to you at home for watching another all the clock we'll see you back here next time you.
