San Diego International Airport, Additional Fuel Storage Tanks

San Diego, CA

This project consists of expanding the existing fuel farm located at San Diego International Airport. Three new tanks are being constructed and are approximately 58 ft in diameter and 58 ft tall. The surrounding containment area is comprised of a gravel surface with a linear beneath isolating the containment area from surrounding surfaces and soils. This project extends the containment area by partially demolishing an existing wall so that the new and existing tanks will have one shared area. When completed, the existing and new tanks would be sized to contain the total volume of fuel of the largest tank should a catastrophic event occur, and all the fuel from the tank is released.
