Sheetpile Floodwall  

Painting

           The deterioration of the existing protective paint coating system on the sheetpile floodwall in Exeter Borough was listed as a deficiency in the latest United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) routine inspection report on the flood protection system.  To address this maintenance issue, the structure received a new protective coating system on its exposed steel surface.  The scope of work for the project included the removal of the existing surface paint through sandblasting, and re-coating the floodwall with a new protective coating system approved by the USACE.  A contract was awarded to Minoan Inc., York, PA. Work commenced in October and was completed November 2019.
