Water Distribution Process [11]

A container for storing liquids or gases. A tank may be constructed of ferrous or nonferrous metals or alloys, reinforced concrete, wood, or filament-wound plastics, depending upon its use. Tanks resting on the ground have flat bottoms: those supported on towers have either flat or curved bottoms. Standpipes, which are usually cylindrical shells of steel or reinforced concrete resting on the ground, are frequently of great height and comparatively small diameter. They are built to contain water for a distribution system, and height is required to maintain pressure in the system. Tanks for other liquids and for gases, where storage is more important than pressure, are generally lower and of greater diameter.
