Elevated Water Storage Tanks

Employees need specialized training to keep elevated water tanks in top operating condition, to work safely, and to keep tanks protected. This extra-value DVD covers maintenance, safety, and security on two DVDs.

Two programs on one DVD!

Part 1: Maintenance

Proper maintenance of water storage tanks is critical to a water utility's efforts to provide customers with a reliable supply of safe water, delivered at acceptable pressure. This program provides a basic overview of tower and tank inspection and maintenance procedures. It describes types of water tanks and towers, components, operation, and efficient water-storage techniques. Cold-weather concerns, corrosion, painting and coating, draining, and cleaning are discussed. 20 min.

GIS for Water Utilities DVD

This video provides an overview of the use of geographic information systems (GIS) in water utilities. Many utilities are converting their paper maps to electronic formats so the maps can be used by a GIS, a powerful computer-based information management system designed to work with data referenced by geographic coordinates. It is estimated that approximately 80 percent of all asset information can be geographically referenced. A GIS allows utility operators and managers to determine where their assets are located--for example, the location of valves, water mains, hydrants and meters. A GIS also lets users update, analyze, and display information about those assets. As a result, a GIS can reveal important information that leads to better decision making.
