The existing coating system for Settling Basin Number 6 at the Courtney Bend Water Plant has reached the end of its effective life. The coating system is required to protect the steel structure of basin, preventing corrosion and damage. The existing coating system was installed in 2004, and the new system is expected to have an effective life of approximately 20 years. Settling Basin No. 6 is one of six such basins at the Courtney Bend Water Plant, and they are a vital part of the plant’s operation.
