Whatcom Environmental conducted a UST removal and remediation at a historic gasoline station property. The property had not operated as a gasoline station since at least the 1970’s, and the tanks and piping were abandoned in place when the property was redeveloped in the past. Five USTs and their associated piping were decommissioned and removed from the site. Soil samples collected during the UST removal confirmed that a release of petroleum products had occurred to soil.
Following the release discovery, approximately 950 tons of contaminated soil were removed from the site for offsite treatment and disposal. Soil samples were collected to document successful remediation of the soil. Based on the remediation work performed, the site was issued a No Further Action determination by Ecology.
