Document Description
The Fuel Farm Expansion Project at SDIA, comprises three 1.15-MG above-ground fuel storage tanks, each with a usable storage volume of approx 966,000 gallons; concrete containment dike walls; accessory piping, pipe supports and foundations; concrete equipment pads; steel platforms and stairs; extension and modifications to the existing fire suppression system; and an associated underground drainage system. The three proposed new tanks would be constructed immediately northeast of the existing jet fuel storage tanks on existing Airport property, and would be approx 58 ft in diameter and 58 ft tall. The containment area consists of a gravel surface with a linear beneath isolating the containment area from surrounding surfaces and soils. The proposed project would extend the existing containment area to accommodate the addition of the three new tanks. The existing southern containment wall would be partially demolished to act as an intermediate dike wall, this allows for the new tanks and the existing tanks to have one large shared containment area. Additional intermediate walls would be installed between the new tanks as well. The whole shared containment area, existing and new, 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. Note: See NOP for full description
