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.

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. R.I.P.™ 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.
