Item #: SCP-xxxx

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: A privacy fence is to be erected along the property of the abandoned Sleighton School located in Glen Mills, PA, USA. Personnel assigned to SCP-xxxx will need to have a urological catheter in place and must not exceed 72 24 8 hours any amount of exposure outside of evacuation testing (controls are still in the process of being developed). Samples from any evacuation event are to be stored standard refrigeration vault storage for further study disposed of.

Description: SCP-xxxx is an abandoned water tower. Records indicate it was erected on the now abandoned Sleighton School property sometime after 1910, however its anomalous properties were only just recently discovered after a mass evacuation incident happened within the nearby town.

SCP-xxxx stands 50 meters in height and shows moderate signs of corrosion typical of a structure left in such conditions with no ongoing maintenance. Based on its dimensions, SCP-xxxx could hold up to 40,000 liters of water. It has also been observed during extended evacuation testing that the contents of the water tower cannot be reduced.

SCP-xxxx's main water pipe that connects to the underground water system appears to have collapsed due to compromised structural integrity caused by corrosion. Despite that, water does not appear to flow freely from the bottom. Low frequency reverberations of a structural nature have been recorded periodically. The source or cause of these sounds are undetermined.

Ok, did you get it. Mind if I just wrap this up already?

~Herman Muntz, Field Research and Acquisitions

No, more additional context is required. Plus we are still working on a plan.

~Frederick Carlyle, Director

The effective range of SCP-xxxx seems to be correlated to time, with the range increasing at a rate of 20m/hr. This distance will continue to increase in size over time until a human enters the range of SCP-xxxx. After a period of evacuation, the range will begin to decrease to a minimum of a 5m radius. The intensity of evacuation seems to build in pressure as the range increases. It is recommended to avoid ranges in excess of 500m which constitutes a pressure greater than 170kPa. At such pressures, damage to human tissues may be irreversible. The highest recorded pressure during an evacuation incident was estimated to be excess of 10,000kPa.

Seriously, I'm done. Reassign me please.

~Herman Muntz, Field Research and Acquisitions

Denied. Finish the report and then I'll have you rotated out when we have something, but not before.

~Frederick Carlyle, Director

Currently the only know method of interrupting evacuation is during direct observation SCP-xxxx. However, this does not halt the gradual increasing of the effective range. In fact it has been observed to accelerate the increase in most cases. Once direct observation is broken, evacuation will resume.

For Pete’s sake, Fred. This is downright unbearable. I did what you asked. Get me out.

~Herman Muntz, Field Research and Acquisitions

We just don't have the D-class on hand at the moment to replace you. I'm sorry. Request denied.

~Frederick Carlyle, Director

It is believed that the majority of the tower's contents is comprised mostly of freshwater, but again this has only been verified indirectly through evacuation testing and has not been measured directly. Debris such as rust flakes, dirt, algae, and other particulates have also been verified through evacuation testing. No solid has been observed to be greater than 3mm in diameter, however this limit remains inconclusive as more evacuation testing may be required.

It hurts and its freezing cold! Can't you get one or two D-class from another site nearby?

~Herman Muntz, Field Research and Acquisitions

We can't afford another incident like the one in town. A man exploded. You were the only specialist in the area on short notice. I swear I will have a replacement for you in 24 hours. All you have to do is sit and wait.

~Frederick Carlyle, Director







SCP-xxxx and this assignment are fucking bullshit.

Now you are pushing it.
