The Tank of the Year contest, a national water storage tank competition presented by Tnemec Company Inc., has come to an end and a winner has been chosen. This year's Tank of the Year is the City of Cocoa, Florida.

The 156-foot-tall water tank in Cocoa features artwork of three American flags, representing the patriotism found in this community located on Florida's east coast near the John F. Kennedy Space Center. The 1.5-million-gallon tank was built in 1957 to supply drinking water to the growing area and was painted with its signature flags in 1976 to commemerate the nation's bicentennial. 

This tank was among 12 finalists in public voting conducted Oct. 5-16. Other cities with top-voted tanks for the 2015 contest were: Plant City, Florida; Cedarville, Ohio; Nobleton, Ontario, Canada; Lebanon, Missouri; Zebulon, North Carolina; North Newton, Kansas; Amboy, Illinois; Oak Grove, Missouri; Chesterfield, Virginia; Carrollton, Texas; and Mont Belvieu, Texas.

The Tank of the Year finalists were selected from a field of more than 200 water tank nominations, and a total of 20,703 overall votes were cast by the public. 

The City of Cocoa's water tank will be featured on the cover and first month of Tnemec's 2016 Tank of the Year calendar. Runners-up and nominees will be included in the following months of the calendar. Click here to order your free copy.
