I am not sure that galvanized culvert could be used with potable water storage;
maybe zinc from the metal could make the water toxic, for drinking purposes - maybe OK for washing, etc.

What about concrete culvert pipes set on end in concrete - big diameter
or better yet, concrete septic tanks or some other type of concrete box, closed with port or open ended.
