Genesis Environmental Solutions (Blue Springs, MO) was awarded a contract of $2,121,586 to clean and coat steel mechanisms in four clarifier basins, as well as two ground storage tanks and other metal structures for the Johnson County (KS) Water District #1 (WaterOne.)
Genesis, founded in 2004, has worked on similar projects in the past, but none of this size, according to Mark Marmon, the firm’s coatings and linings manager. “This is a rather large project, one we don’t see every day,” said Marmon. He also said that WaterOne has been a client for several past projects, particularly within Genesis’s Industrial Cleaning Department. “We’ve had a good working relationship with WaterOne for some time,” he said. The project includes abra-
sive blast cleaning and recoating submerged surfaces, as well as overcoating exposed surfaces associated with treatment basins, the exterior of existing dry chemical storage tanks and associated conveyor piping, washwater tanks, and various mechanical equipment.
“We’re very comfortable with the larger items in this project,” said Marmon, a former applicator and foreman.
