A water tank is a container for storing liquid. The need for a water tank is as old as civilization, to provide storage of water for use in may applications, drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for plants and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food preparation as well as many other. Water tank parameters include the general design of the tank, and choice of construction materials, linings. Various materials are used for making a water tank: plastics (polyethylene, polypropylene), fiberglass, concrete, stone, steel (welded or bolted, carbon, or stainless), Earthen ponds function as water storage. Water tanks are an efficient way to help developing countries, LEDCs, to store clean water.

Preventing Loss

A 49-year-old water storage tank leaking water eventually led the town of Chapmanville, WV, to replace its 75-year old water distribution system in 2015. Eventually, it learned that the town’s distribution lines were also leaking like sieves. Together, the distribution lines and leaking storage tank were losing more than half

Water Storage Systems

Water Storage Systems

There are two minimum requirements for civilization: a sewage system to carry away wastewater, and a consistent and reliable water supply system to provide water for drinking, bathing, and irrigation. A water supply system consists of several components. These include a source of water (groundwater, freshwater pond or lake, man-made

Keeping Water Quality Contained

Keeping Water Quality Contained

Whether cost or a myriad of other reasons make connecting an individual site’s water supply to a municipal water supply unfeasible, many applications require storage of a large volume of water. In many of these applications, whether they are for potable or non-potable water, facility owners must meet a water

With droughts underscoring the need now more than ever for water efficiency, the elements involved in water storage have taken a more significant role in that effort. “A fundamental component of efficiency—reduced usage—is retaining and storing used water reserves for future use, which is where storage tanks come in,” says

How Empty Is The Basin?

For one of my weekly blog posts in April, I shared about the water levels in Lake Mead being lower than they have been since the man-made lake was filling up behind the Hoover Dam in 1937. Water containment projects the likes of Lake Mead have allowed for fountains in
