Underground Storage Tank Removal & LSP Services Throughout New England

Wilcox & Barton, Inc. has provided tank removal, hydraulic lift removal, and LSP support services for a variety of projects at more than 50 telecommunications facilities throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. Projects often begin with underground storage tank and hydraulic lift removals, but commonly expand to include additional assessment of soil, groundwater, soil gas, and/or indoor air under the Massachusetts Contingency Plan or other state regulations. Contaminants of concern have included petroleum compounds, metals, chlorinated solvents, and PCBs. Complicating factors have included the location of contamination beneath an occupied building, the presence of historic fill, nearby contaminated sites, owner/tenant negotiations, and historical site use. Projects have included the successful rebuttal of a Downgradient Property Status submittal filed by an adjacent property owner, later shown to be the likely source of chlorinated solvents, and the rapid installation of a sub-slab depressurization system to mitigate indoor air concerns.
