Overhead tanks and capacity supplies are utilized to store water, fluid oil and comparable fluids. Repository is a general term used to fluid stockpiling structure and it very well may be underneath or over the ground level. Supplies underneath the ground level are ordinarily worked to store expansive amounts of water. The overhead tanks are upheld by the section which goes about as stage. This Overhead sort of water tanks are worked for direct dissemination of water by gravity stream and are more often than not of littler limit.

Capacity overhead tanks are utilized to store water. These overhead water tanks are planned by utilizing of IS: 3370. BIS has drawn out the modified variant of IS: 3370 (section 1& 2) after quite a while from its 1965 form in year 2009.

The target of this exposition is to reveal insight into the distinction in the structure parameters of Intze water tanks without considering seismic tremor powers. What's more, Intze water tanks structured with quake powers. First plan depends on Indian standard code: 3370-1965 and second structure depends on Indian standard code: 3370-2009 and draft code 1893-Part 2, (2005). Design of water tank in present days following every one of the criteria of new IS Code: 3370-2009 and new Draft IS Code: 1893-2005 (section 2) at that point I will discover that Weather the water tanks is sheltered or not which were configuration by utilizing IS: 3370-1965 without considering tremor forces. After getting the data which is-climate safe-"it's sound" Or not reasonable retrofitting strategy will be contemplated and wherever required will be connected.
