Sheldon Drive Water Tank Painting Project:

August 28, 2019:

This shall serve as a response to flyers distributed throughout the Village concerning the Sheldon Drive Water Tank Painting Project and notice to the general public concerning the general project. 

The Village of Delhi is undertaking a maintenance project to repaint the steel water storage tank located off of Sheldon Drive, adjacent to Delaware Academy School.  The tank has been in place for many years with rust on the exterior.  The work is being completed by a lawfully bid-selected contractor specializing in this trade, and is under the direction of a licensed engineer.  Accordingly, appropriate and lawful measures were used to ensure the safety of those on the project, as well as the surrounding area.  To that end, the existing exterior paint did contain low levels of lead, and appropriate containment measures were implemented to ensure the safety of the water supply, neighboring school property, and workers completing the project.  At this time, the exterior paint has been removed and will be disposed of in accordance with applicable state and federal standards.  Soil sampling is conducted prior to and after the work to ensure no contamination has occurred.  The tank itself will also be tested.  The contractor performing the work is insured and bonded.  Additional interior painting work is currently underway as corrosion was identified once the tank was initially drained.  The work will be completed over the next two weeks, to allow for the water tank to be placed back into service. 

The Village prides itself on ensuring the safety of all concerned when undertaking projects and will continue to ensure that safety for this Project and others.  Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Village of Delhi Deputy Mayor at 607.746.2258.
