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.


During the removal of an underground storage tank system/airport apron upgrade, drums containing residual oil as well as jet fuel or diesel fuel were encountered. These materials apparently were abandoned while the Coast Guard managed the site. ADOT&PF worked with the department to allow the apron upgrade to continue. 22 drums filled with tar, various metallic debris, and 1,600 cubic yards of DRO, RRO impacted soil were removed in 2001. The site is on the current parking apron and is covered with asphalt. Contaminated soil remains above cleanup levels. Groundwater was not encountered at excavation depths of 18-feet. The site is currently in the FUDS program, but is a low priority due to limited exposure pathways (2007).
