Purdue is moving forward with plans for a Thermal Energy Storage Tank.
The Physical Facilities Committee agreed to install it on the south side of campus near the Wade Power Plant.
Vice President for Physical Facilities Bob McMains a redesign of previous plans makes the location a better fit than others.
"We just felt like we had to push the water further so that would be more of a cost. But, as we designed the tank, we could come up with a better, more efficient tank on the south side to cover the cost for the extra piping we'd need to push the water up,” he said.
