This Technical Information Report describes the development of a 10,000 barrel, envelope-type, embankment-supported, bulk-fuel hasty storage reservoir, which is one segment of a comprehensive fuel-handling equipment development program. The current design of the reservoir calls for a 32-ounce-per-square-yard, nitrile-coated nylon fabric. Empty, it is 184 by 49 feet and weighs about 4,000 pounds filled its top is 180 by 45 feet, its bottom 150 by 17 feet, and its depth 13 feet. It is installed in a pit made by excavating or erecting earthen embankments. The reservoir is usable with both high- and low-pressure pumping systems. It is transportable by C-124 aircraft or ground transport vehicles and will be used in the field army area until semipermanent tanks can be built. Engineering-service tests of the reservoirs are to be completed about July 1968. Author
