Academy Water and Sanitation District – Colorado Springs, CO

Three water vaults under residential streets were showing signs of infiltration and the manager of Academy Water and Sanitation District felt that epoxy coating was the answer. Utility Maintenance Contractors was able to coat the vaults with 125 mils of 100% solids epoxy and ensure that the vaults would not be subject to further infiltration problems. Work was performed during winter months and offered challenges with bringing the concrete structures to an acceptable temperature for coating. Residents were not impacted by UMC’s work area and all coating work was completed on schedule and at budget.
