Hauling A 40,000 Gallon Water Tank To A Ghost Town!

Hi people! This week was INSANE up here at Cerro Gordo. We brought the biggest water tank to ever be up here to town thanks to the help of Heavy D Sparks and Diesel Dave and crew! 40,000 gallon tank measuring over 47 ft long and 13 ft around. This will provide the water for the American Hotel sprinkler system. A HUGE day in Cerro Gordo’s history…but it is not over yet. There is some updated news at the very end, so make sure you stick around for that.

    Hey everyone! Make sure you make it to the end of this one. Quite a twist at the last moment. Thank you all so so much for all the support over the years! If you’re interested in some Cerro Gordo merchandise, you can find that here: https://store.cerrogordomines.com/

    • Brent as you say where’s there’s a will there’s a way , you will find a way to rebuild the road & you have a million people willing you to succeed

    • @Av8 He mentioned doing that for the potable water system one day. But this tank is dedicated to the fire protection sprinkler system only. It must meet exacting NFPA requirements for storage and supporting pumping capability along with a number of other fire/building codes, like the location of the tank & pump house in relation to the building it’s protecting etc…

    • Dang!! It’s a good thing the tank came up when it did, or else it would be another year waiting for everything to line up. Still, washed out dirt roads can be dealt with a lot more easily than hauling that tanks up there; I’m sure there will be help in getting things smoothed out at least enough to start getting concrete and some water shipments up there before winter truly hits. Keep on working it, one step at a time!!

    • I definitely cannot wait for this update… ♥️❤️‍🩹🙏🏽

  3. one question, that looks like a steel tank, how are you going to control the rust effect on the tank and in the water?
