A 500-gallon underground storage tank (UST) was installed at this site in 1988 (ADEC Facility ID: 764; Tank #1). The UST was installed adjacent to the generator building and was utilized for the storage of diesel fuel. On October 9, 2013, the UST and its associated piping were removed from the site. During removal activities, no visual or olfactory evidence of contamination were noted. Soils removed from the ground were temporarily stockpiled adjacent to the excavation. Eight soil samples, including a duplicate soil sample were collected from this site (four below the tank, one below the piping, and three from the soil stockpile). The samples were analyzed for GRO; DRO; and benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and total xylenes (BTEX). Additionally, one soil sample and its duplicate were analyzed for polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). None of the soil samples exhibited constituents that exceeded the most stringent ADEC cleanup levels.
