Electrostatic Painting:
    • As part of the District’s FY24 Deferred Maintenance project list, several park fences and gates were electrostatically painted. Electrostatic painting is when a positive charged electron within the spray nozzle charges the paint particles then, because these particles all have a positive charge, they repel each other and break apart, resulting in a fine mist that coats evenly. The following locations received this specialized painting:
      • Overlook Park tubular steel fence
      • Hollow Oaks LLAD Emergency Road Gate
      • Oak Knoll handrails
      • Promontory Pipe Gates Park Parking Lot
