Carbon/Glass Reinforced Polymer Structural Rehabilitation: Current and Recent Projects

Lakeview Water Treatment Plant

Tarpon is currently working on GFRP repairs/restoration to 12 potable water treatment tanks, at the Lakeview Water Treatment Plant, in the Region of Peel.  The activities associated with the design/build repairs/restoration to the potable water treatment tanks include, but are not necessarily limited, to:

  • provision of Design/Build Engineering specifications, technical criteria, and design data required for obtaining client approvals;
  • installation of structural lining to the potable water treatment tanks with internally bonded GFRP; the GFRP to be installed using the internally-applied wet layup method;
  • setup and maintain site conditions, including heat and dehumidification, site protection 
  • provide localized dewatering of potable water tanks;
  • provision of confined space rescue services, confined space entry equipment, confined space entry permits, atmospheric monitoring equipment and other health and safety equipment and procedures;
  • preparation of existing concrete surfaces, by high pressure water blasting, achieving manufactures require profile;
  • conduct various pull tests and other strength and moisture concrete tests to ensure the concrete strength, moisture levels and adhesive strength meet manufacturer’s specifications;
  • expansion joint caulking; and
  • coordinate and provide removal and appropriate disposal of all waste, including wash water from surface preparation; and
  • provide temporary electrical power as required.
