Chuck Sanchez   Onsite-nuclear disposal waste magagement container rust bins that will be around for 10,000 years and leave a sad stain on your shirt if you decide to climb the spiraly staircase silo.

  Wow, that's a lot different than a water tower. I'll have to do some research on that.

Thanks.

  They are Product Storage Silos, usually used for product like raw PVC resin [used to make vinyl seat covers, things like the old LP records, and the like.

They're are not associated with nuclear waste in any way. Shame on you, Chuck.

  I was thinking if you had an image of this structure with the wider view, it would or may have been a little easier to identify. The structures may be water towers (anywhere), or storage silos (on the farm), but by any chance they were near the oil rig or oil pump? It could have been petro storage. I used to see some of them on the country road in some parts of Texas.

  There were in the Owens Valley California, so they could be oil or water. Storage Silo works for me. I just needed something close so I could keyword these.

Thanks to everyone for the help.

Happy Holidays!
