Because water towers are a cheap, reliable way of generating enough pressure to get the water into your house--not an issue with petroleum tanks. If you didn't have towers you'd have to use pumps, and buying enough pumps to meet peak demand would be prohibitively expensive for most towns. Towers simplify matters. You pump water up at a steady rate and gravity does all the work getting it down. Since the pressure is a function of the height of the column of water inside the tower, and since the height of that column doesn't diminish appreciably until the tank is virtually empty, the pressure stays steady regardless of fluctuations in supply and/or demand.
AST's or Above Ground Storage Tanks, majority are an American Petroleum Institute (API) design.
1). When they're on the ground, they're called water "tanks", not "towers". 2). Water 'tanks' are used to store water until it's needed. Water 'towers' also do that, but in addition, they deliver the water with pressure behind it, since the water starts out at some height, and falls to the place where it's used.
Petroleum engineers are the people in charge of getting the oil from the ground and into storage tanks in the safest way possible, here is more information: http://careers.stateuniversity.com/pages/75/Petroleum-Engineer.html
The planes that crashed into the towers had full fuel tanks when at the time of impact.
So you can use gravity rather then a pump to get water out of them.
so that if it springs a leak you can put a drip tray underneath
The Kuwait Towers contain water tanks, lighting equipment, and a restaurant. The towers opened to the public in 1977 and have been closed since 2012.
LPG BULK Means LPG TANKS.
how can methanol be stored at above ground storage tanks
If you meant to ask "How DO many towns......", by pumping water into elevated tanks.
under ground in tanks so it doesnt ignite
You drick the ground up chunks of them.

liquefied petroleum gas and liquid propone gas LPG stands for "Liquified Petroleum Gas" or "Liquid Propane Gas". The term is commonly used when describing the gas tanks of vehicles which run on such fuel.
Above ground septic tanks that fit underneath RV trailers are approximately $700.00
The weight of the tank is distributed over a large area, exerting less pressure on the ground. Hence, the army tanks run on tracks.
Yes, it's ok to fill from a well. It is smart to have the water tested. A pool supply comapny should be able to do this. The exception would be filling from a shallow well that may contain pesticides or petroleum (gasoline or oil). This can happen when older storage tanks rust through and the product contaminates the ground water.
They helped ground troops cross open ground and provided great protection for the troops within the tank. Since tanks had not been seen before at first the Germans did not know how to fight them so they were unbealtable for a short time.

reservoirs and water storage tanks and towers, typically
just send 4 tanks to the top of the screen
Reservoirs,trunk lines and underground and above ground tanks.
I am not understand exactly what you ask, but my response would be to GROUND the tank, in case of a lightening hit.
