Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Scrap is way down. So why is the bid price starting at $5,000? (2/14/20 12:16 PM)
A: The starting bid price does not consider current scrap metal prices. The starting bid price is geared more towards waterworks/water utility companies interested in purchasing the tank to use. (2/18/20 10:52 AM)
Q: What is the interior? Glass lined? How many panels are there? (2/14/20 2:38 PM)
A: The City acquired the tank through a transfer of property, and it has not been inspected or put into service by the City. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the interior condition of the tank. According to the manufacturers quote, the tank is coated with Thermal Bond 579. According to the plans, the tank is sealed with Sikaflex 1A. Number of panels = 60 (2/18/20 10:20 AM)
Q: Can you provide any photographs of the interior? (2/21/20 10:08 AM)
A: Currently, no interior pictures are available. I may be able to get access to the inside of the tank prior to the auction closing; however, not guaranteed. (2/24/20 10:00 AM)
