Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1543-CO
Building/structure dates: 1916 initial construction
National Register Number: 75002103
Significance: The water tanks (Facility Nos. 188A and 188B), built circa 1916, are considered significant for their association with United States (U.S.) Naval history and the Mare Island Naval Shipyard (MINSY), the first Naval installation on the West Coast of the U.S. The water tanks are contributing elements of the successful base operations at MINSY. They appear to be the first and, for over 75 years, the only large-scale above-ground liquid storage tanks on the island. Their design is noteworthy in the demonstration of a past construction technology (riveting) that is no longer used.
