Quality Control Steel Tanks

Prices field erection during normal business hours and dry weather. Prior to scheduling the tank construction, you will be required to certify the site preparation completion. If at all possible, a representative from Georgia Water Tanks will confirm conditions in person also. If for any reason the site is not prepared in accordance with the document you signed, you will be responsible for charges for delays. These charges must be paid in full prior to scheduling a return trip. 

After tank construction and water testing, you will sign a document accepting the tank. Until that point, you may not perform work inside the tank. After that point, you will be responsible for repairs due to punctures, tears, or other damage incurred.


Concrete Tanks

Exact location of tank pit will be confirmed with owner prior to digging. All existing utilities are to be verified and marked by owner prior to any digging. All utilities located during excavation that are noted to be in work area will be relocated by owner. All Erosion control procedures will be set in place prior to startup. Contractor has GSWCC blue card. Type C erosion control fencing will be used at perimeter of work area. All dirt will be piled and covered with rain tarps or fenced as required to decrease erosion.


The proposal does not include the cost of additional work and or any associated costs incurred by the occurrence of unknown or unforeseen site conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Removal of rock by any means other than normal mechanical bucket excavation which does not unduly extend the allowed excavation time.

  • Site soil conditions which do not “hold up” when excavated and which result in trench collapse.
  • Sub-surface water ingress.
  • Work required to increase the foundation bearing capacity.
  • Trenching and routing of site stormwater may require a change order.


If we discover any unstable soils or other conditions listed above during excavation, we will submit a change order for approval. 


Excavation will consist of a layback consistent with with OSHA standards for class C soil. Shoring of walls and professional soil analysis is not included in bid price.


Typical on-site construction time is 35 days, including an allowance for 4 rain days. Each rain day necessitates an additional delay day for cleanup and erosion control. The price for rain delay days and cleanup are included in the bid price. Construction schedule is dependent on the weather.
