Raven Receives Top Projects Award

Raven Lining Systems and WT Energy Services (a Raven certified applicator), were recently recognized as one of Water and Wastes Digest’s Top Projects of 2015 for the town of Wilson, Oklahoma. 

The Wilson project showcased WT Energy & Raven’s solution for the town’s aging potable water storage tank issues. Two (2) of the 80 year old tanks were in extremely poor condition, with cracks and leaks, due to the deterioration of the concrete, exposing the re-bar. One of these tanks was leaking so badly, that it was taken out of commission, which required the town to spend $4,000 per month to purchase water to meet their demands.

The town council needed to make a quick decision on whether to re-place these clear well tanks, which would be very expensive (>$1M) or find a way to quickly fixed them, so they could continue supplying safe clean drinking water for their town.

WT Energy Services evaluated and recommended rehabilitating these tanks with Raven AquataFlex® 510, which is a 100% solids NSF ANSI61 pure polyurea lining for potable water.

The cost of replacing the underground water storage tanks would have been around $1.4 million. “Thanks to WT Energy and Raven Lining Systems, the city of Wilson was able to repair the tanks for $140,000, which was a $1.26 million savings for the city”, said town of Wilson Mayor, Frank Schaaf.  On top of this capital savings, the town will be able to realize an additional $480,000 savings over the next ten (10) years by not having to purchase as much water from a neighboring town to meet the city of Wilson’s potable water demand.  In addition to the positive financial impact from this infrastructure investment, the town of Wilson has improved their long term water sustainability, by saving thousands of gallons of water that was once leaked out of the tanks.

Top Projects awards were presented to the owners, designers and contractors at a special W&WD-hosted awards ceremony during WEFTEC 2015, and will be highlighted in a full coverage Top Projects article to be published in the December 2015 of the Water & Wastes Digest Reference Guide.
