Describes briefly the design considerations for an elevated prstressed concrete water storage tank. Discusses in greater detail the use of slip-forms in constructing the 83-ft substructure and the concreting of the tank floor, walls, and dome roof and the prestressing of the walls and the dome ring. Rubber joint seals at top and bottom of the walls insured water tightness and prevented transfer of undesirable stresses from the walls to other parts of the structure.
