BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Sandblasting will begin soon on phase two of a tank rehabilitation project in Burlington.

The project began last year as a way to make sure there’s sufficient water pressure at higher elevations in the city.

We’re told the tank being worked on now will provide water pressure for the UVM Medical Centers Level 1 Trauma Center.

It was scheduled to start Monday, but that was postponed because the contractor needed to get some additional permitting.

In addition to sandblasting, there will be various coats of paint.

The whole process should take about four weeks.

The noisy sandblasting period should be about three weeks or less and will take place Monday through Friday anytime from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
