(Hamer, SC) — South of the Border’s water tank just got a makeover. The Southern Corrosion team of Engineered Tank Care specialists recently spiced things up for the Highway 95 landmark’s water tank with a fresh coat of paint.
Southern Corrosion staff that worked on the South of the Border project have been showing off their work boots, which are splattered with South of the Border’s famous bright yellow paint. Jim Skilton, Southern Corrosion President, said of the project, “Pedro and the staff were very satisfied with the outcome, and our team had fun working on it. That’s the best possible outcome.”
Built in 1965, the South of the Border tank holds 100,000 gallons of water and is a standard elevated tank. It provides drinking water for South of the Border’s facilities, which include two restaurants, a convention center, motel, and campground.
