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.


Investigation of black soil material surrounding piping from a 15,000 gallon heating oil UST on 8/23/96 found DRO at 2,320 ppm . An approximate 17 cubic yard soil stockpile was existing on site from a previous excavation. A duplicate of soil sample D55751-5 for this stockpile resulted in benzene at 0.984 ppm, above the cleanup level of 0.5 ppm. A second stockpile of approximately 16 cybic yards was made on 8-23-96. The analytical results for this second stockpile were below cleanup levels. Based on available information it is unclear whether the UST was left in-place or not. Very little information in the file. The elevation is ~12 meters (~38 feet). West and Romig School Sites Subdivision, Tract 1.
