Tank dimensions are 24' x 10' x 13' LWH. This converts to 23,283 gallons of filtered, but unheated, room temperature salt water (~33 PPT).
The tank is located in the OSB Assembly area, adjacent to the Staging area. The tank is in the NW corner below grade. Viewing from below is possible from 8 large windows accessible through the basement, room OSB 30.
The tank itself is covered by 9 large heavy lids that allow for forklift traffic across the top. Access to the tank is achieved by unbolting a lid and lifting it off with the 5 ton crane overhead. A specific bridle exclusively designed for this purpose hangs on the post SW of the tank. E. Each metal cover weighs 1150 pounds. They may be stacked up to 3 high, off to the side. Return the bridle to its storage location. Install safety cables around test tank opening as illustrated below if left open overnight. Reinstall the covers over the test tank in the proper numbered order when completed.
Please protect the surface of the test tank. It has a Vandex waterproof coating. Do not drill, scrape, scratch, or severely load this coating or it will leak.
