Bryant Street Pumping Station
Challenge: The driving force of DC's Water District is the Bryant Street Pump Station (BSPS) servicing all areas of the city. Constructed in 1904, it has undergone extensive renovations; the most recent was the $55 million renovation completed in 2006. The steel pipes were showing signs of surface rust and contained peeling, flaking, chipping Lead-Based Paint. An environmentally advanced GSA listed green coating was required to stop all rust and corrosion, prevent future corrosion, and seal in the potentially harmful Lead Based Paint.

Results: Removal and replacement of the existing paint was cost prohibitive and GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s (GEI) LeadLock™ System was chosen to encapsulate the rust and existing layers of Lead Based Paint as well as provide a finished system that was custom tinted to customer specification. RIP™ Rust Inhibiting Primer was applied to spot prime all rusty surfaces. Next, PrepLESS Primer™ was applied to penetrate, soften and reattach all loose and flaking paint. LeadLock™ TopCoat provided a durable and long lasting finish coat, completing the durable, seamless monolithic membrane that offers 20 Year warranted protection against lead hazards and future corrosion.
