This tank farm is located approximately 100 feet west of the Anvik River and consisted of four horizontal steel tanks (total capacity of 21,835 gallons). The tanks appear to be empty and not in use. The July 14, 1998 assessment report indicated that a fifth tank was present at that time. A diesel odor was noted in the vicinity of the tanks, and staining was apparent in several areas near the front of the tanks. The soil sample collected from near the dispenser shed contained 16,200 mg/kg DRO and 99.7 mg/kg GRO.
