Overhead tanks and storage tanks are used for storing water, liquid petroleum and similar liquids. Reservoir is a general term used for liquid storage structures and can be located below or above ground level. Cisterns below ground level are normally built to store large quantities of water. The overhead tanks are supported by the column that functions as a phase. This type of above ground water tanks is built for direct distribution of water by gravity flow and usually has a smaller capacity. Storage tanks above the head are used to store water. These main water tanks have been designed using IS: 3370. BIS has released the revised version of IS: 3370 (part 1 & 2) after a long time from the version from 1965 in 2009. The aim of my research work is to highlight the difference in the design parameters of Intze water tanks without taking into account earthquake forces. And Intze water tanks designed with earthquakes. The first design is based on the Indian standard code: 3370- 1965 and the second design is based on the Indian standard code: 3370-2009 and draft code 1893-part 2, (2005). Design of water tank in the current time according to all criteria of new IS code: 3370-2009 and new concept-IS code: 1893-2005 (part-2) then I will discover that Weather the water tanks is safe or not, which were designed using IS: 3370-1965 without taking into account earthquakes. After obtaining the information that - weatherproof - 'it is healthy' is whether the unsuitable method for adjustment afterwards will be studied and where necessary will be applied.
