The Skyline Area primarily consists of a set of eight 100,000-gallon aboveground storage tanks that were used to hold potable and non-potable reclaimed industrial water. The area covers approximately 5.6 acres. Skyline Road, in this area, generally runs east and west and lies to the south of the Bravo Area. The water was gravity fed to both the Alfa and Bravo testing facilities and used as cooling water and/or fire protection water during testing operations. These tanks also provided non-potable, reclaimed industrial wastewater for the Coca and the Delta Areas to the southwest. Water was used to cool the flame deflector bucket of the test stand during testing. Demolition in this area includes removal of the aboveground storage tanks and a power pole that held a set of elevated transformers.
NASA kicked off Phase 2 of demolition in the Skyline Area to remove obsolete water tanks and pipeline. The photos below show the progress made with demolition of the Skyline water tanks and the pipeline leading from the water tanks to the Coca Test Area.
