whatever floats your boat
More boats, more tanks...(NSF)

...until the last tank got some special attention (I).
your're the last one
Here it goes! (I).

Now for a look around the place...here is the new emergency exit door on the upwind end of the arch (2005).

Inside the door...the top landing of a spiral stair (2005).

A more recent look at the markings and signatures on the last row of tanks (2005).

Here's the walkway along the side of the arch (2005).
a moment in the sun
Here's the fuel arch pumphouse. Normally this structure is rather hard to photograph, but this unique view was taken in 2005-06 when the downwind bulkhead was being replaced as part of the biomed arch raising project (JM).

A closeup view of the northwest end of the pumphouse, with the first tank in the background (2008).

Looking southeast along the upwind side of the pumphouse. These two sides of the pumphouse are due to be "pushed out" to expand the building interior during the 2008-09 summer (2008).
