Sales Handle A comprehensive handbook on steel water storage tank design, construction, maintenance, and repair that is destined to become the industry bible.About the Book Since 1960, 250,000 steel tanks have been built. This handbook, developed by members of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Tanks Committee, expands on AWWA's Manual M42 on Steel Water Storage Tanks and will serve as an industry source of information on steel water tanks. The first modern steel tanks book published in nearly ten years, it covers potable (drinking) water.Features Information on steel water storage facilities In-depth coverage of selection and sizing Codes and regulations Inspection and cleaning techniques Information on modeling and monitoring water quality Guidelines for cold weather operation A complete, single-source reference on steel water storage tanks--how to design and build them and how to maintain and repair them Previously announced Summer 2008; all backorders cancelledMarket /Audience Distribution system managers, operators, consultants, and other utility personnel.

Meier, P.E., S.E. (Bolingbrook, IL)is one of the foremost structural engineering experts for the design, construction, and rehabilitation of concrete and steel structures for storage systems, with specialized expertise in seismic design. He has served as structural engineer in responsible charge for numerous water storage, granular, and cryogenic storage tank construction projects, as well as seismic design and retrofit projects. Meier spent more than twenty-two years with one of the nation's leading tank and vessel constructors, during which time his professional emphasis was on steel tanks. Meier, who served as Principal Structural Engineer for the Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage project sponsored by the Defense Nuclear Agency, for which he holds two patents, is Chair of the AWWA Steel Tank Committee.The American Water Works Association (AWWA),founded in 1881, is the authoritative resource for knowledge, information, and advocacy to improve the quality and supply of drinking water in North America and beyond. The AWWA is the largest organization of water professionals in the world. The AWWA advances public health, safety, and welfare by uniting the efforts of the full spectrum of the drinking water community.Meier, Steve is the author of 'Steel Water Storage Tanks: Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Repair', published 2010 under ISBN 9780071549387 and ISBN 0071549382.
