Title: Masonry bunds for oil storage tanks
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This document provides guidance for the construction of simple, reinforced masonry bunds for oil storage tanks up to 3.5 metres wide and 1200mm high. It is based upon CIRIA Report 163 "Construction of bunds for oil storage tanks". Where circumstances dictate a larger or more complex construction reference should be made to the original report. A similar specification for concrete bunds is also available from the Environment Agency. This report contains sections on: siting and site preparation; hardcore and blinding concrete; reinforced masonry walls; coating and surface treatments; and drawings of constructions.
