November 7th, 2014, Ginger Allen and the CBS 11 i-Team watches as my company inspects and cleans a north Texas water tower. The tower was cleaned as a normal maintenance procedure. A light- brown dusting of sediment was removed from the interior floor before it could get deep enough to support bacteria and become a problem.
The tower was cleaned by a Commercial Diver who was trained at OCEAN CORP, Houston, Texas. The Diver is sealed in his own environment, then washed down with a chlorine solution. Because we specialize in the inspection and cleaning of Potable Water Storage Facilities, all of our equipment is purchased for, and only used in, potable water.
This utility is doing a great job of maintaining their system. However, utility managers across the country struggle to get the funds to properly maintain their systems. The EPA is currently considering a regulation that would require all water storage facilities to be inspected and cleaned at regular intervals. This new requirement could improve the water quality for millions of Americans.
The EPA is taking comments on this proposed regulation until the end of the year. We have the contact information posted on our blog, or you can just take our poll at: www.cleanwatertankproject.com. The poll results will be turned in to the EPA at the end of the year.
Safe tap water is something everyone should have.

This story aired on November 19, 2014 at 10:00 PM. By the end of 2014 it had been shared on Facebook over 400 times! Ok, it is a lot for a story about dirty water towers! Our poll on the next post was shared 118 times when the numbers mysteriously went away. It now shows 0 shares, I am not sure how that happened or why I am telling you about it, I guess I found it interesting or frustrating I’m not sure which…
Thanks for taking the time to check this out.

This great video shows a diver cleaning a water storage tower and what the sediment looks like as it comes out of the tank. TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) requires that water storage tanks serving the public inspected once a year. Cleaning schedules are left up to the utility operators. The AWWA suggest that tanks be cleaned every 3 to 5 years or as needed. We often inspect tanks that have never been cleaned.
