Abatement by Encasement: Safeguarding People while Saving MoneyTM

Water Regulator House – Connecticut

Case History

Property:

Water Regulator House

Location:

Connecticut

Challenge:

The building had tests performed showing a LBP content of 131 mg/dl. We needed to lock down any of the loose paint on the walls and stabilize the paint for worker and drinking water safety.

Solution:

SE-110 and SE-120 were tinted to a turquoise color for this project. The main concern was to address the LBP within fully functional water treatment building which supplies million of gallons a day of water to several local towns. This work was done while the filter beds were still in use. The secondary concern was the application of a product within the regularly humid environment. Additionally 2 hoists were in place within the filter plant which needed to be kept fully operational in case of emergency (they were covered while the contractor spray applied the SES.)
