What does a cylinder storage yard look like?

Pictures of depleted UF6 cylinder storage yards are shown below. Storage yards are large outdoor areas that typically have a gravel or concrete base. All of the newer yards are built of concrete. The cylinders are typically stacked two high in the yards. The bottom cylinders are placed on concrete chocks, with some wooden chocks being used in older yards.
