Document Description
The existing fuel farm at SDIA, constructed in the early 1990s, is located in the northeast corner of the Airport property, north of Runway 9-27 and the Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting facility, east of Marine Corps Recruit Depot - San Diego, and west of W. Washington Street and the Airport Traffic Control Tower. The existing fuel farm contains two 1-million-gallon aviation fuel tanks and is supplied by regional refineries via an existing fuel delivery pipeline. Any lapse or shortage in fuel delivery, as well as inspection and maintenance activities of on- or off-Airport fuel pipelines or the fuel farm systems, requires fuel to be delivered to the Airport via tanker truck, which results in substantially slower and less reliable replenishment of the fuel farm supply. Since the construction of the existing fuel farm, increased passenger enplanements have been accommodated through the use of larger aircraft and additional scheduled aircraft operations. In July 2018, the peak aviation activity month, the fuel farm could accommodate approximately two days of fuel reserves. The existing fuel reserve capacity is well below the industry standard ( a 5- to 7-day supply of fuel) for airports similar to SDIA, making SDIA operations susceptible to inadequate fuel supply during pipeline malfunctions and facility maintenance. see NOD for full details.
