A pair of municipal water tanks in Katy Texas, are this year’s winner of the Tank of the Year competition sponsored by Tnemec Company, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance coatings. The legged water tanks were selected by a panel of water tank enthusiasts based on criteria such as artistic value, significance of the tank to the community, and challenges encountered during the project.
“The murals represent a connection to the Katy Texas Prairie Conservancy area where geese go to winter.”
This is the 13th anniversary of the competition, which recognizes the most impressive coatings projects in the water tank industry. Nearly 270 water tanks were nominated, and more than 30,000 online votes were cast this year from across the U.S. and Canada. This year’s finalists represent several different types of water tanks including legged designs, composite constructions, ground storage tanks, pedestal styles in various shapes and sizes, as well as tanks used to store methane captured from sewage treatment.
The Tank of the Year will be featured as the month of January in Tnemec’s 2019 water tank calendar.
