Tell City water tank finalist in Tank of the Year contest

INDIANA – A water storage tank in Tell City, Indiana was among the top 12 finalists selected during the 2023 Tank of the Year competition sponsored by Tnemec Company, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance coatings. The tank will also appear in Tnemec’s annual water tank calendar alongside the other top finalists.

“Overall, our team at Tnemec was blown away not only by the number of entries in this year’s
Tank of the Year contest but also by all of the innovative and creative designs in this year’s pool
of candidate tanks,” explained Brian Cheshire, Director of the Water Tank Market. “The tanks in
this year’s contest highlighted the hometown pride and overall ingenuity from many towns all
across the United States and Canada.”

Mexico; Dunedin, Florida; Florence, South Carolina; Hugo, Oklahoma; Lake Worth Beach,

Over 320 water tanks were nominated with a record of over 46,000 online “People’s Choice”
votes cast this year from across the U.S. and Canada. Each year, the Tank of the Year winner is
selected by a panel of water tank enthusiasts based on criteria such as artistic value, the
significance of the tank to the community, and challenges encountered during the project.

“Since 2006, Tnemec has been recognizing municipalities for their aesthetic, creative, and
innovative uses of our high-performance coatings on water storage tank projects,” Cheshire
added. “This year’s finalists represent several different types of water tanks in various shapes
and sizes, all of them impressive for one reason or another.”

This year’s winning Tank of the Year and People’s Choice award winner is in Bryan, Ohio, a
tank displaying multiple 65-foot-tall Dum-Dums representing Spangler Candy Company’s most
popular lollipop flavors. The Tank of the Year will be featured as the month of January in
Tnemec’s 2023 water tank calendar. All finalists and nominees will be included in the following
months of the calendar.
