AWWA Design Standards

AWWW Design Standards

MYTH!!! AWWA IS A CODE. NO! AWWA is a Design Standard. NOT a code. Did you know that only water storage tanks that need to meet AWWA design standards are the ones installed BEFORE a Public Water Meter? Did you know that it is common to use AWWA design standards for writing specifications for ANY Water Storage Tank, even if it is used AFTER a Public Water Meter? For any tank specified AFTER a Public Water Meter, the AWWA design standards DO NOT apply. Structural codes for Water Storage Tanks AFTER a Public Water Meter only need to meet the Local Building Codes and ASCE7-10 for structural loads such as winds and seismic. They DO NOT have to meet AWWA design standards. AWWA has design standards for public water systems for different types of tanks.
