I have been tasked to design an overflow pipe for an elevated potable water tank. I have reviewed several sources to make sure that my assumptions regarding inlet and exit losses, pipe flowing full v. venting through pipe assumptions are correct. To date, I have not found a good comprehensive reference, including AWWA and API. Does anyone know of a good reference for the proper design of a water tank overflow pipe?
