2021 Tnemec Tank of the Year

Moorhead’s Southside Water Tower
Named Tank of the Year!

The 2021 Tnemec Tank of the Year is the City of Moorhead’s newly finished 750,000 water tank in south Moorhead!

Since 2006, the Tnemec Company has been named a “Tank of the Year” winner based on nominations from across the country. Because the company creates coating products formulated to protect and prolong the paint life of water tanks, design is a major factor in choosing the winner.

The design was created after the city reached out to the community to discover what they loved best about their town. The responses were overwhelming. So, instead of simply using the city’s logo, they decided to incorporate an assortment of favorite attractions and activities and selected an energetic, colorful wrap-around mural designed by artists Stephen Dorset and Jack Lunde.

Moorhead Public Service chose Apex Engineering Group to design and manage the project and KLM Engineering provided welding and coating inspection services to the water tower.

Moorhead’s southside water tower will be featured in the 2022 Tnemec Tank of the Year calendar, which is distributed nationwide.
