The Department accessed funding from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the state’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund to construct a 250,000-gallon storage tank at the Doe Run Road Water Treatment Plant, install a contaminant removal system, and complete plant building upgrades that will allow for additional treatment to cover future needs.
When exposed to moisture, the active ingredients in PENETRON ADMIX SB react to form insoluble crystals, which fill in cracks, pores, and voids in the concrete – becoming an integral part of the concrete matrix. The formation of the crystals throughout the concrete matrix prevents water to pass through the concrete of the Doe Run Road plant’s new water storage tank – even under conditions of constantly high hydrostatic pressure – that would otherwise cause corrosion and resulting deterioration.
