Does anyone know what is keep in the large storage tanks bordering PCH and Redondo on Reservoir Drive? We are staying close by and our complex has sign that there is some sort of substance that can cause health problems "such as tobacco".
I've searched the internet and cannot find anything on those storage tanks. I'm thinking its oil or some fuel of some sort.

Don't recall what's there, but Long Beach is dotted with on-land oil derricks and those would require storage tanks

Such as tobacco? WTH? Are they full of surplus second-hand smoke or something?

Seriously, do they have a rigid, external frame, outside the walls?

I believe you're referring to the Prop 65 warning signs that are required on just about everything in this state. Someone in your complex might smoke tobacco, use a BBQ, open a can of paint, start their car, or do any one of a million other things that are known to cause cancer even if the odds are somewhere between slim and none. So the management has to put warning signs up. It has nothing to do with any storage tanks nearby.

You are talking about the huge circular things on Redondo right? I've always just figured that's oil, that's actually Signal Hill.

Impala you are totally wrong the one they are talking about is Water north of the PCH I guess the proximity of the tanks to each other and the name Reservoir Dr gives it away a little.

This only references one or two tanks not a whole cluster of tanks.

Long Beach is a great area to live in and I feel that it is a lot cleaner in air than San Pedro. There is so much gunk in the air that if you want to escape it then you must live in a bag! Don't get nervous if your lungs don't get you the traffic will!
