RGC PUD Completes Maintenance on Las Lomas Ground Storage Tank

The City of Rio Grande Public Utility Department has been diligently working over the last three weeks to ensure the Las Lomas Ground Storage Tank receives a comprehensive maintenance update. This effort aims to prevent tank rust and enhance water quality for the community.

The maintenance project on the Las Lomas Ground Storage Tank is part of the city's ongoing commitment to providing safe and reliable water to its residents. The tank, vital to the local water distribution system, required thorough servicing to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

"Our team at the Public Utility Department has been hard at work to ensure that the Las Lomas Ground Storage Tank remains in top condition," said RGC Public Utilities Director Eric Flores. "Regular maintenance is essential to prevent rust and maintain water quality, which is crucial for the well-being of our community."

The maintenance process involved cleaning, inspection, and applying protective coatings to the tank's interior surfaces. These measures help prevent corrosion and ensure the integrity of the tank's structure, ultimately safeguarding the quality of the water supply.

"By proactively maintaining our infrastructure, we are able to provide our residents with clean and safe drinking water," added Flores. "This maintenance work is part of our ongoing efforts to prioritize the health and well-being of our community."
