Toyota Auto Service Company property had an underground waste oil tank (1000 gallon) and a heating oil tank located on site. The waste oil tank and approximately 120 cubic yards of soil was removed (and stored on site) in September 1993. The excavation extended to groundwater approximately 11 feet below ground surface (bgs) but further excavation was stopped due to the proximity of the building foundation.

10/10/2007 Conditional Closure Approved ADEC determined that any residual contamination remaining on site does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment provided the owner / operator of the site complies with the conditions established in the decision document. The stored soil is also approved to be landspread on site in accordance with a plan approved by DEC Jim Frechione
10/10/2007 Institutional Control Record Established ADEC shall be notified in accordance with 18 AAC 78.274(b) when soil or groundwater is proposed for transport off site. A Notice of Environmental Contamination (NEC) shall be posted on the ADEC database that provides information regarding the contamination issues associated with this property and any land use restrictions and/or controls applicable to the site.

They indicated the soil will be sampled late 2008 field season to document current concentrations. A composited sample procedure was recommended whereby the area should be split into grids and from each grid - 5 to 10 composites combined into each lab sample Jim Frechione
