Previous updates

Crews are pouring concrete for the LNG tank foundation. Approximately 800 yards of concrete has been brought in by truck from plants in Watertown and Whitewater. The trucks unload into the two red pumper trucks. Aerial booms connected to the trucks bring the concrete to the foundation. Workers use vibrating equipment to move the concrete in between the foundation rebar. Once this work is done, crews will begin putting up the carbon steel outer tank.
