A tank is standing, but you can see behind it where a smaller diameter tank once stood. They are by a large area of grass. There is now also a tall cellphone tower in front of the standing water tank. All is enclosed by an 8 ft. locked metal fence. We could see in, but with the fence could only get 58 ft. from GZ.
