Cocoa's Water Tank Wins 2015 Tank of the Year

Tank of the Year is a national contest presented by Tnemec Company, Inc., which was awarded this year to Cocoa's iconic 156 ft. tall structure. The tank, which features three 25 ft. high American flags, was recently re-painted as part of a resurfacing project started last year. The flags were originally painted on the tank in 1976 by a Greek immigrant to celebrate the nation's bicentennial. When the recent resurfacing project came up for approval to City Council, it was decided that the flags remaining on the tank was a necessity.
