Hanna Car Care Center is a commercial car wash and former gas station, located at the northwest corner of Peck Avenue and Muldoon Road in Anchorage. The building houses an automatic car wash system with an automobile detailing garage bay located on the west side of the structure. A convenience store and gasoline service station was formerly located in the east side of the car wash building. In 1999, four registered undergound storage tanks (USTs) and five unregistered USTs were removed. During the UST removal, contaminated soil was excavated and treated at Alaska Soil Recycling (ASR).

In May of 1999, DEC requested that the responsible party perform a remedial investigation and corrective action plan for the documented release of petroleum fuels from the formerly used USTs. The remedial investigation was conducted in March of 2001 and revealed that petroleum constituents are at concentrations that exceed state regulatory levels in soil and groundwater. This facility continues to receive grants through the State of Alaska Financial Assistance Program to fund cleanup activities.


Public Health and Environmental Concerns


The contaminants of concern (COCs) are primarily petroleum; gasoline and gasoline components (BTEX). Petroleum contaminated soil and groundwater remains on property.


Current Status


The site is being investigated to further delineate the extent of petroleum impacts to soil and groundwater. Once the extent of petroleum contamination is known, a remedial plan will be developed to address both soil and groundwater contamination.
