Rehabilitation of National Water Storage Landmark

In 1980, noted muralist Mr. Peter Freudenberg, put the finishing touches on one of the most unique water storage structures in the United States, the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission's Earthoid on the campus of Montgomery College in Germantown, Maryland. The structure, painted to resemble the astronauts' "bird's" eye view of the earth, is not only a fully functional 2,000,000 gallon water storage tank, but also a civic landmark for area residents. The structure was heralded as a ground-breaking project in the water storage, protective coatings, and steel plate structures industries.
