Water Storage Tank Coating
The City of Luverne, Minnesota owns and operates a water storage tank that was built in 1945. The tank is a riveted style of construction that was built prior to the full implementation of electric-arc welding. Being less than 20 miles away, DGR Engineering made an initial investigative inspection of the existing coatings to determine an appropriate maintenance strategy. A sample of the exterior paint was removed and analyzed for lead content. Test results showed the paint had a lead concentration that would require abatement.
Abatement of the lead based paint was achieved by requiring a lead stabilizing abrasive additive, a containment shroud with air-impenetrable walls, ceiling, and floors, and safe collection and disposal of the contaminated abrasive media.
In addition to containing the removed lead-based paint, the containment shroud prevented blasting media and newly applied paint from drifting off-site to the adjacent residential housing and busy state highway.

The SE Sanitary Sewer Extension project provided sanitary sewer service to a previously un-serviced area southeast of Dell Rapids, SD
Dell Rapids, SD
Two-phase, 3.16 mile recreational trail on the north and west side of Luverne.
The addition of these new lots gave the City of Minneota opportunity for growth and an increased tax base.
Coordination between multiple entities to create a mutually satisfying layout of buildings, parking area, utilities and street access was a main element of the planning process.
