Removal of three 4,000-gallon diesel tanks with significant soil contamination adjacent to the tanks, with standing water at the bottom of excavation with 1/8 inch of fuel floating on the surface of water. One sample was taken from the bottom of the excavation with diesel range organics (DRO) results of 32,900 parts per million (ppm). The soil removed from above the tanks and the overburden soil was placed back into the excavation in order to protect the health and safety of the public. The storage of the contaminated soil next to the power plant would pose a potential safety hazard, since a boardwalk and a community playground is adjacent to the property. Following placement of the overburden soil into the excavation, the pit was lined with plastic and capped with approximately 3-feet of uncontaminated gravel.
