Springerville, Az. Tank removal completed Dec 5th 2013


The challenge: Atwell was the low bidder for the removal of the old 250,000 gallon water tank in Springerville Az. The tank was built over 60 years ago and was decommissioned in 1998, but remained a local landmark. The tank was found to have lead-based paint and was only accessible through the town graveyard.

The Atwell solution: Atwell decided to mechanically shear the tank instead of flame cutting it. Using a 330 excavator and a LaBounty MPS20 plate shear, and a loader with forks to carry the material to the loading point, and despite freezing temperatures and 92 mph winds, Atwell removed the tank in two days.
