|The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum requirements
for the design, construction, inspection, and testing of new
cylindrical, factory-coated, bolted carbon steel tanks for the
storage of water. This standard is only applicable to tanks with a
base elevation substantially at ground level.
Tank roofs. All tanks storing potable water shall have
roofs. Roofs may be column-supported, self-supported, or aluminum
dome. Tanks storing nonpotable water may be constructed without
Items not described. This standard does not cover all
details of design and construction. Details that are not addressed
shall be designed and constructed to be as adequate and as safe as
those that would otherwise be provided under this standard. This
standard is not applicable to tanks of corrugated construction.
This standard is not applicable to tanks constructed of stacked
plates or sheets laminated to form multiple layers.
Local requirements. This standard is not intended to
cover storage tanks erected in areas subject to regulations more
stringent than the requirements contained within this standard. In
such cases, this standard should be followed where it does not
conflict with local requirements. Where more stringent local,
municipal, county, or state government requirements apply, such
requirements shall be specified, and this standard shall be
interpreted to supplement them.
