Abstract:In France, water towers, reservoirs, tanks, and basins constitute extensive facilities requiring inspection and maintenance. The survey recently conducted on the performance and durability of waterproofing in these structures is of considerable importance at the present time, with the publication of the new French professional recommendations, the revision of Section 74 of the CCTG (general technical specifications governing public contracts entered into in the name of the state), and the negotiation of future European Community regulations. This survey enables us to better understand existing facilities and to obtain precise information on such structures, with details on capacities, heads, and commissioning dates, but also on the selection of the initial waterproofing used, which may be a sealed structure itself or a support for waterproofing.
