I know that water tanks have to be maintained and inspected to remain in compliance with the environmental permit. What I need to know is how often those things should be done. Any idea? If not, can you tell me where I might find the information? I made some phone calls today, but no one was able to help.
Florida, United States
You're right about one thing, Overtime, the information is hard to find. The best that I could come up with is that some tanks must undergo an inspection by a licensed engineer every 5 years. I believe that's only for potable water, though. This is the only source that I could find.
I did a little digging on this, and it seems they don't inform people on when these inspections usually happen, but it sounds like they do scheduled checkups. You will probably have better luck reaching out to the Florida DEP directly and ask them about the process.

Woah, you guys did much better at finding the information than I did. Thanks for taking the time to research my issue. You've both provided me with a great starting point.
Maintenance and inspection frequency for water tanks depends on factors such as tank size, usage, and local regulations. You can find specific guidelines in environmental permits from the American Water Works Association. You can also consult with environmental agencies or water utility associations for recommendations tailored to your region and circumstances.
