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.


In September 1999, 3 USTs were removed. The presence of petroleum hydrocarbons, exceeding ADEC cleanup levels, was evident in the field screening and documented by the laboratory analytical reports. However, no additional excavation was conducted to remove the impacted soil. Approximately 35 yds3 of contaminated soil generated during the UST removal was stockpiled on site.

7/11/2005 Report or Workplan Review - Other Reviewed UST closure report. DRO soil contamination exceeding ADEC cleanup standards exists in excavation and stockpile. Additional assessment, corrective action & remediation required. Sent e-mail to ADOT to see if any additional work may have been done since 2000. Donald Seagren
7/12/2005 Update or Other Action DOT has not conducted any further work since UST removal in 2000. A letter was sent requiring additional assessment and corrective action work be conducted to bring the site to closure.

5/18/2006 Update or Other Action Discuss preliminary site findings with Mike Reiser (SLR). Test pits and holes have not found the contamination at levels reported in the R&M report. At a loss to explain the differences. Installation of MWs will provide additional information on soil & GW contamination. Stockpile will be sampled. Based on assessment and stockpile sampling results, the remediation contractor may not be needed. Decision will be made when more information is available. Donald Seagren
6/26/2006 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review, and approve for final issuance, the 2006 SLR site assessment report. We did not find the level or amount of contamination expected.

Contamination at the site is not causing risk to human health or the environment. I can recommend decommissioning the monitoring wells and closing the site. Peter Campbell
