An elevated water storage tank on Billtown Road will be the fourth tank to include the Louisville Water logo. The bowl of this tank is 74 feet in diameter, 35 feet tall, and holds a million gallons. The logo, which will be hand-painted, will be 150 square feet. It will be visible driving north on Billtown Road and is part of an overall repainting project that will begin next March and last until May.
The tank was erected in 2000 and was the second “composite” style elevated tank built for Louisville Water. A composite tank consists of a single concrete pedestal supporting a welded steel container.
“One of the challenges of this tank renovation is that AT&T has a dozen antennas on top for cell coverage in the local area,” said John Terry, Production Engineering Supervisor. “I’m coordinating with them to erect a temporary tower adjacent to our tank next spring during the renovation work.”
Louisville Water began adding logos to tanks as they are repainted during the past decade. The three other tanks with Louisville Water logos are shown below.
