Project Portfolio: Environmental Site Assessment - Auto Repair Shop
<< Previous Next >>
Wilcox & Barton, Inc. performed Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Activities for a former auto repair shop prior to the purchase of the property by our Client. Soil and groundwater at the property were found to be impacted by historic releases of gasoline. Wilcox & Barton, Inc. completed the proper notification for the release to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). With Site Assessments completed and the sale of the property finalized; development of a new convenience store and fuel dispensing facility began. During demolition, Wilcox & Barton, Inc. oversaw the removal of three hydraulic lifts and four 4,000-gallon gasoline underground storage tanks (USTs) submitting all required reports and notifications. Additional soil and groundwater contamination associated with the removed USTs and lifts were found and further investigation and remedial activities including product removal were conducted by Wilcox & Barton in accordance with NHDES requirements. Wilcox and Barton, Inc. assessed the eligibility criteria and appropriate remediation funds available in order to access cost recovery options for our client. New tanks, pumps, and convenience store buildings were constructed to establish a new 7-Eleven location. Currently, Wilcox and Barton, Inc. continues to monitor down gradient properties impacted by the historic release with a groundwater management permit (GMP) in accordance with NHDES regulations.
