Water Storage: Tanks, Cisterns, Aquifers, and Ponds for Domestic Supply, Fire and Emergency Use
By Art Ludwig, 125 pages
This definitive work on water storage includes all you need to know to design, build, and maintain water tanks and ponds and to sustainably manage groundwater storage. You'll learn what kind of storage will serve you best - tanks, ponds, groundwater; how much storage you need, where to install it, how to properly plumb it, which accessories would benefit your home, farm, or community - in short, how to make your access to clean water more secure. You'll also learn how to make your storage - and your entire water system - perform better if there are water quality issues, severe supply constraints, or highly variable demand.
Author Art Ludwig delves into fire protections and disaster preparedness and includes the best building instructions we've seen for making your own ferro-cement storage tanks. Like Ludwig's other books, the value-density of Water Storage is exceptional. As the National Drinking Water Clearinghouse put it, "On the average water system, this book will pay for itself a hundred times over in errors avoided and maintenance savings."
This book is aimed at small communities, farms, ranches, off-gridders, and anyone interested in water security.
