Fill holes and depressions and flatten ground.
Lay a smooth bed of sand or light soil if the ground is very rough or rocky.
Lay a ground sheet if sand or light soil is not available.
If the tank is to be used on the site for a long period, a minimum of 4 inches of sand or soil should always be
put down on the site before the tank is placed in position.
Lay two 75 feet lengths of nylon webbing 4 feet either side of the centerline of the cleared area. This
webbing is to assist in rolling the tank up when it is to be removed. The webbing is not supplied.

be placed at the lower end of the slope.
