Official Work Morning

March 8, 2019

Tanks are us week.

This is a City of Seattle tank, at 32 million gallons, a bit larger than the 2 million gallon tank pictured earlier this week.

Well, the tank is underground

352 feet in diameter. Up to 55 feet tall. It’s immense. A forest of columns.

The hole in this tank is smaller than the hole in the tank at our office, but we cut the hole in our tank on purpose.

One of the many interesting (to me) aspects of this structure is the underdrain system. It includes perforated concrete pipes. And each of the perforations was hand drilled.

Here is a rather high hard hat. I don’t wear it often, so I haven’t bothered to try any adjustments.

Would you pay attention to this job boss?
