Tank Rehabilitation
Gregory R. “Chip” Stein, P.E. Tank Industry Consultants Maintaining water-storage facilities is becoming increasingly important because of rising replacement costs and the difficulty of obtaining rate increases and funding for large-scale construction operations. Although the cost of maintenance is also increasing, these smaller outlays can substantially delay or even eliminate the need to replace a utility’s large capital investment in tanks. This chapter is a guide to the proactive rehabilitation of existing water tanks as well as a guide to planning short- and long-range maintenance operations on a new tank.
