Leakage test for cast-in-place tank

Leakage test for cast-in-place tank

Would anyone have advice on how to go about performing a leakage test on a new cast-in-place tank?  What is a common allowance for leakage?
Are there any on-line specifications that anyone is aware of that address this topic?
Thanks for any responses.

Check ACI-350.1 2001 Tightness Testing of Environmental
Engineering Concrete Structures

There is also the AWWA at www.awwa.org


RE: Leakage test for cast-in-place tank

The test used in the UK is the 21 day drop test and is outlined in the British Standard BS 8007.  This is also explained well in the book by R.D Anchor "Design Of Water Retaining Structures"
