A spill of residual oil occurred in the booster pump enclosure of PS#10 due to a broken seal in a return line originating at the Topping Unit. 15 yards of contaminated gravel was removed with a super sucker from the south wall of the booster pump enclosure. Additional contamination was left in place due to concerns of building integrity. Additional remediation will be required upon facility shutdown or reconfiguration. A potential IC site due to contamination under building foundation. Another later cleanup was performed at this location - see file 330.38.090

Based on the information provided to date, the ADEC has determined that the contaminant concentrations remaining on site do not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment, and no further remedial action will be required as long as the site is in compliance with established institutional controls. This decision is based on the administrative record for PS 10 Booster Pump Building, which is located in the offices of the ADEC in Anchorage, Alaska. Keather McLoone

11/20/2017 Meeting or Teleconference Held Attended a meeting regarding the elimination of non-essential infrastructure at Pump Station 10. There are five Alyeska sites located at this pump station that have institutional controls and this site is one of them. Construction is in the planning stages and will not begin until 2019. The foundations for the buildings on the pad will remain in place so the residual contamination that may remain underneath the foundations will remain in place. Because of this, the project is not planning on addressing the known contaminated site issues. Verifying this detail should be included in the next IC compliance review. Evonne Reese
