What is a perspective? Perspectives are different frameworks from which to explore the knowledge around sustainable sanitation and water management. Perspectives are like filters: they compile and structure the information that relate to a given focus theme, region or context. This allows you to quickly navigate to the content of your particular interest while promoting the holistic understanding of sustainable sanitation and water management.

Subway potable water storage tanks

When it comes to service stations it is essential to respect a series of safety standards, since the material that is stored and provided there is highly volatile and flammable, therefore, the subway tanks implemented for storage must be properly selected and installed, since the safety of those who work or use the services offered by these stations depends largely on them.

These are places for storing a variety of fuels that are usually located underground in service stations. They are usually implemented when the amount of fuel to be stored is higher than the conventional levels.

When building subway tanks for fuel storage, it is usually chosen the use of steel as the base material, due to the fact that this material is much more resistant to any type of corrosive or wear process that takes place over time, it is important to remember that it is not just any liquid that will be stored, it is a high-risk material, therefore the material implemented must be above all, highly resistant. However, there are many materials that can be used, for example fiberglass, as long as they pass a series of resistance tests necessary to determine how suitable it is for the storage of this type of material such as fuel.
