Potable Water Services
Access to clean potable water is essential to the survival and wellbeing of a community, and in order to protect and preserve this resource regular maintenance is a necessary step. Midco Diving & Marine Services Inc. offers a comprehensive lineup of potable water services to ensure that your potable water systems & storage facilities are safe and functioning properly.
The first step to ensuring a clean supply of potable water is by scheduling regular inspections of your potable water storage tank(s). In accordance with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Standard D101 – 53 (R1986) Section A – 1.1, potable water storage tanks need to be inspected at intervals of no greater than 5 years. Thorough inspections will identify important factors such as sediment collection, leaks, intrusions, and corrosion as well as indicate if your water source is subject to other issues such as rapid sedimentation. Midco Diving & Marine Services Inc. offers camera inspections, ROV inspections, and potable diver inspections for all of your potable storage tank inspection needs.
In addition to regular inspections, routine cleanings are also an important step in maintaining a potable water facility. Even minor sediment accumulation along the tank floor can lead to problems such as corrosion and bacteria buildup which can have an adverse effect on the water quality within a facility. Midco Diving & Marine Services Inc. has experience cleaning on-grade, below grade, clearwell, pedestal, standpipe, and tower potable water storage facilities. All of our in-tank cleaning equipment is fully disinfected according to AWWA Standard C65C-02 and is reserved for use solely in potable water storage systems.
Potable water inspections and tank cleanings are important steps towards maintaining your potable water facility. These steps will also help to identify when additional maintenance or repairs may be needed. Common issues that are often uncovered through the inspection and cleaning process include deterioration of the tank coating, leaks, intrusions, and damaged or faulty components such as tank valves and intakes. The professional team of potable divers at Midco Diving & Marine Services Inc. is qualified and capable of performing a wide range of potable water maintenance and repair services often without affecting the function of the facility or draining the water supply.
