In July 2015 a 1,100-gallon regulated diesel underground storage tank (UST #2) was removed from an unpaved area northwest of the generator building at the ASD Hanshew Middle School in Anchorage. Initial environmental sampling results indicated petroleum contaminants were present in soil, but were below the most stringent DEC cleanup levels. Additional sampling was conducted at one of the vent pipe joint locations and laboratory data results are pending.
