Hidden Georgia Tech: The Cistern System at Tech Green
By Victor Rogers NOVEMBER 10, 2017
Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view, but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo essay series highlighting places on campus that are hidden in plain sight.
THE CISTERN SYSTEM AT TECH GREEN
In the heart of campus, west of Clough Commons, is a 3.2-acre green space called Tech Green. The open space is a prime location for celebrations of all sorts, throwing a Frisbee, or just relaxing.
While there’s usually something happening on Tech Green, a different kind of activity is taking place a few feet below — in a 1.4-million-gallon underground cistern system.
Let’s go down under.
