It's my understanding that these tanks exist for the purpose of providing adequate water pressure for residential use (e.g. showers, faucets, toilets, etc.) I don't think they could possible hold even a small fraction of the water necessary for emergency power generation.Before we get too, too, smug about this if you view the Manhattan skyline, particularly downtown (e.g., SOHO/Tribeca) you'll see house-sized water tanks on many, many buildings, particularly 3-10 story older buildings. I assume due to inadequate water pressure but I honestly don't know why they're there, but they're all over. I don't know if they're quite large enough for the proposed use, but their existence would seem to defy most of the objections asserted below.
