Water Ways: New Tanks!

Some recent scenes from the Water Ways process…

The environment got new flooring in September – a multi-phased and smelly (!) process that required the Museum to be closed for a week. The finished product:

Our new tanks have been fabricated offsite by subcontractors over the past few months. Based on designs provided by the Museum, they created patterns for the tanks from Styrofoam and then used the patterns to fabricate tanks in fiberglass.

Once the new floor was complete, staff used paper templates to map out final tank placement.

And then our four new tanks were delivered and assembled.

Stay tuned for installation of new water activities!
