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.


On April 5th, 2010, a 550-gallon regulated diesel underground storage tank (UST) #2 was closed by removal at the Ferry Terminal in Hoonah. Initial confirmation samples indicated diesel range organics (DRO) and benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX) were detected below DEC cleanup levels, but additional assessment activities may be required to comply with DEC UST regulations. Groundwater was assumed to be tidally influenced and was not encountered since the Site consisted of imported fill over tidelands. Copy of the field notes were submitted that indicate the locations and results of soil field screening with photoionization detector on overburden soil eighteen inches under fill and vent piping, the excavation sidewalls and bottom, and the piping run to the building. Results ranged from 0.8 to 2.2 parts per million by volume. Analytical samples were processed for DRO and BTEX compounds had results below cleanup levels. DEC approved deviation from the specification in the UST Procedures Manual that requires tanks with number one diesel be also analyzed for GRO and PAH compounds.
