Flexible-Membrane Covers and Linings for Potable-Water Reservoirs
|Publication Date:||1 January 2000|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This manual is intended to serve as a technical reference guide in designing, installing, operating, and maintaining reservoirs using flexible-membrane materials for linings and floating covers. Source information was gathered by reviewing and collecting the experience of designers, manufacturers, and owners of flexible-membrane products that were introduced to the water industry in the early 1950s.
This manual is not intended to be a design handbook or the
equivalent of an AWWA standard. Rather, it should serve as a
technical reference document to be used in conjunction with AWWA
D130, Standard for Flexible-Membrane-Li
Information in this manual may not apply to all types of installations or materials. In applying specific recommendations, the user must assume responsibility for accommodating a specific set of conditions.
