Buffalo Road Tank Rehabilitation


As part of the Water Authority’s ongoing steel tank maintenance program, tanks are repainted on a regular basis, typically every 18-20 years. This work is performed by a contractor hired by the Water Authority.

Steel water tanks are painted to prevent corrosion. The existing coating is removed down to bare metal and damaged areas are repaired. Maintenance work to ladders, entrance hatches, vents and overflows is also done at this time.


The Water Authority's contractor will begin working in the beginning of February and should be complete by the end of May.  

You may contact our Customer Service department at (585) 442-7200 weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, or our Dispatcher at (585) 442-2009 weekdays before 8:30 and after 4:30 pm, and on weekends and holidays. A Water Authority inspector will be onsite throughout construction. Our inspectors carry an ID card and drive a company vehicle with a Water Authority logo on it. They are happy to answer any questions you may have.
