PIT STORAGE - FUEL
KISKA 
(1) This ground view of partially buried oil drums is also shown in aerial view below. This type storage is fairly common at advanced bases.

(2) Oil storage near MAIN CAMP power  house. This view shows storage trenches for oil drums. Such a dump is generally left at least partially uncovered while in use.

(3) Oil drums at MAIN CAMP. Oil drums covered with sod. Note the mound like appearance which reveals presence of such storage units.

(4) Fuel drums near SEAPLANE BASE. Empty gasoline drums in ditches near Seaplane Base, 7-21-43. When full, drums are covered with dirt. These fuel drums located in ditch storage units are actually empties though full drums are often buried and then excavated as they are used. There is no method of determining whether such are actually full or empty. In many instances no attempt to hide a 'live' dump was made at Kiska However, the majority of the full drums were buried.
