Spring 2017 Construction Update


Donations to our nonprofit project are going right back into our local economy. This spring, Andrew Tuell Concrete, Inc. of Clovis poured a massive two-foot-thick concrete slab for our thirty-foot-tall fire protection water tank after our engineering plans were approved by Fresno County and the North Central Fire Protection District. This slab will provide a solid base for the tank, which will feed into a water main leading to a fire hydrant near the future aquarium building.
