Past Work on Site

This is the location of the former AVEC tank farm, which was moved to its new location near the airport in 1997. A vertical BIA style tank is currently situated at this site. The drain plugs at the base of this tank were removed and the tank was empty. The soil sample collected from the site contained 26,200 mg/kg DRO, however this result is considered biased high due to out-of-range surrogate recovery. A diesel odor was detected when test holes were made for sample collection in the northern area of the tank farm. The tanks were apparently located in an unlined containment basin constructed of a 2-3 foot high gravel dike topped with sandbags.
