For maximum security FEMA chose to use an innovative vault (LCV) to house their emergency power and boiler fueling tanks. The Liquid Containment Vault (LCV) is a unique a concrete sectional vault created from specially formulated concrete mix, factory poured in two parts that encompasses a steel tank. LCV systems offer uncompromising protection to soil and groundwater, corrosion, rising water tables and even the sudden trauma of earthquake activity or an external explosion. Because the storage tanks are located within a vault that allows for easy accessibility and visual inspection by your personnel, they may be classified by the EPA as Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST) even though they are located at or belowgrade.
