Water Storage Tank Problems

  • Focus put on lack of interior inspections of Ohio "water towers;" bird carcasses get legislator's attention (Columbus Dispatch, April 29)
    Commentary: Conducting an internal inspection of any water storage facility is challenging, but when the element of doing it hundreds of feet above ground is added, it takes on additional significance. Ironically, some of the more disgusting images (decomposed bird or squirrel carcasses) can be prevented by regular inspection and repair of vent screens, but even that is no easy task on some taller towers. Will the need for this type of maintenance activity be considered during development of a "distribution system" rule? (You can see the graphic news report as a video or a slide show.)
