We make every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC. It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.
Release of approximately 500 gallons of heating fuel from a 1,500-gallon tank. Heating fuel impacted surface water in Benny Benson Lagoon. ADEC’s Prevention and Emergency Response Program (PERP) directed and performed the response actions at the time, which stopped the flow of free product to the water surface with an oil water separator and used sorbents to remove sheening. ADEC's Contaminated Sites Program had no involvement. Searched for file on 5-17-2006 and unable to locate file in Soldotna Office.

|2/13/2012||Update or Other Action||This is a dated project from the early 1990s that was overseen by ADEC’s PERP program, but was never completed under PERP’s oversight. ADEC files follow the project up to July 21, 1991 when a workplan was submitted by Quest Environmental, work to be funded by the RP’s insurance company. Initial response addressed the flow of heating oil to surface water. No further soil excavation was conducted. The responsible party, Mr. Steve Lemming (Seward Plumbing & Heating) is under the impression that his responsibility is complete. It appears that ADEC did not force the assessment and cleanup of soil at the release site under PERP’s oversight in the 1990s, and that the site was allowed to languish. We have not had any input from the property owner. This site could not be closed by ADEC, without the completion and reporting of assessment work at the release site, identifying current soil contaminant concentrations. Because this site remains open in ADEC’s contaminated sites database, it is possible that this required assessment work could occur at the time of a property transaction.||Peter Campbell|
