Governing version of ACI 318

Q. I am starting work on a new sanitary wastewater pump station project. We were going to base our design on ACI 350-20. ACI 350-20 is tied to the 2011 version of ACI 318 and there has been since multiple revisions of ACI 318. What are the current governing versions of the ACI codes when designing a wastewater pump station?


A. ACI 350-20 “Code Requirements for Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures and Commentary” is the latest version of the code for environmental structures. It is based on ACI 318-11 “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary”. Until a new version of ACI 350 is published, the governing version of ACI codes for a wastewater pump station are ACI 350-20 and ACI 318-11.
