A few things from work

The job I’m on now is demolition and dirt work. There is an in-ground water storage tank that was decommissioned 5 years ago. The area will be turned into athletic fields in the future.
The tank is 320’x400’x23’ deep. 18 million gallons.
There is a hockey arena adjacent to this, the parking lots and sidewalks will get redone as part of this. For now, we have two skids and a small dozer pushing the 2-3’ of dirt off the top of the tank. There are OH power lines on the north side, there are roads on the south and west side. Everything has to come off to the east side. Being the tank is almost 100 years old, we’re notrisking putting a 52 ton excavator on top. The three machines working up there have instructions to spread out.
