The Village of Waunakee, Wisconsin was honored by CNN/Money as one of “America’s Best Small Towns.” It’s decidedly noticeable water tank required an update that reflected the Village’s honor. According to Tnemec coating consultant Cory Erickson, the tank’s aluminum exterior finish was nearing the end of its useful life. Additionally, condensation staining and mildew covered the lower portion of the tank.

Constructed in 1955, the ten legged tank has endured a challenging coastal environment consisting of elevated temperatures, ultraviolet (UV) light intensity, and unwavering humidity. The trio of harsh conditions caused delamination of the clear coat finish in areas, and necessitated frequent maintenance. In 2011, a plan was launched to resurface the tank and transform it into a colorful sea-life mural honoring the region’s significant sea turtle population.
