Action Information

Action Date Action Description DEC Staff
7/24/1989 Update or Other Action ADEC received the Environmental Audit Tesoro dock Facility (presently SERVS Facility) Valdez, Alaska submitted by America North Inc. dated July 24, 1989. Soil staining and petroleum odor was noted outside the bermed AST containment area near the pipelines, however a surface soil sample collected from this area was below cleanup levels. South of the Metal Warehouse (presently a helicopter pad), soil had been exposed from an historic Alyeska excavation. This soil appeared to be heavily contaminated with hydrocarbons. Contamination is known to extend to at least a depth of 6 feet bgs in this area, but total extent is unknown. Grant Lidren
5/26/1994 Update or Other Action Receipt of letter report regarding soil characterization during construction at SERVS VEOC facility. During trenching for water line installation, discolored soil was observed and sampled. Single sample collected and analyzed for DRO, metals, and halogenated organic carbons with only DRO above current Table B2 Method Two with a concentration of 1,290 mg/kg. This letter report also mentions a Phase II conducted in 1993 in which samples were collected from eight surface locations and two borings. Further states that DRO was less than 1,000 mg/kg but doesn't give concentrations or other constituents that may have been analyzed. Requesting additional information (copy of Emcon Phase II) from Alyeska/SLR. Keather McLoone
