A Complete Discussion about Concrete and Steel Tanks


This 3 hour presentation will address maintenance strategies to ensure a long life for steel and concrete tanks. The presentation will provide options to retrofit, rehabilitate and repair concrete and steel tanks (both welded and bolted) for the water and wastewater industry. Next we will discuss options to improve water quality inside steel or concrete tanks by using baffle walls or mixing systems. We will then complete the presentation with a discussion about steel tanks and how to improve the longevity of coatings and ways to greatly eliminate corrosion above the water lines.

Students will learn how to extend the life of older steel and concrete tanks through proper maintenance and options to retrofit, rehabilitate and repair concrete and steel tanks to meet new seismic codes. We will also discuss ways to improve water quality inside the tanks and to reduce corrosion in steel tanks.
