Montebello Filtration Plant
The Montebello Water Treatment Facility was constructed in 1936 and is the main drinking water plant for the city of Baltimore. A total of 270,400 square feet of cement topping was placed to resurface the four settlement basins. The reinforcing steel was cleaned of scaling rust and coated with a long open-time corrosion coating that allowed the preparation phase to be accomplished weeks before shotcrete was applied. The concrete surfaces were coated with a long open-time bonding primer, which allowed flexibility in scheduling of shotcrete application. Conpro Primer because it is water-based and does not have an odor was also ideally suited for this application.
