Title: The Middleboro, Mass., Reinforced Cocnrete Water Tower Tank
Author(s): G.A. Sampson
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 51-58
Abstract:The history of reinforced concrete standpipes and elevated tanks for storage of water had its origin in this country at Mildford, Ohio, in 1903. The first structure was a standpipe having a capacity of 93,000 gal. with an inside diameter of 14 ft. and a depth of water of 78ft. Although the development in this branch of concrete construction has been somewhat slow in the thirteen years elapsed, and marked with a few doubtful successes, there are nevertheless a considerable number now in use that have proven the adaptability and advantages of concrete for these types of structures.
