Evergreen AES UST/AST Tank Removal Process:

To properly complete the tank removal, Evergreen AES will complete sampling, analysis and documentation as required by regulatory authorities, including filing of the Closure Report.
  • This process includes preparation and submission of documentation to the proper regulatory authorities.
  • Minor amounts of residual products including sludge, cleaning liquids, and any water accumulated in the tank are removed from the tank and placed in DOT approved 55-gallon drums with proper labeling.
  • Any electrical supply to the tank(s) will be disconnected. Any concrete/asphalt above the tank(s) and piping shall be removed and disposed of by appropriate methods.
  • The tank and piping within the tank excavation will be exposed.
  • The soil removed will be staged and protected from the elements of weather to minimize the potential for spreading petroleum contamination.
  • The tank will be removed from the excavation along with adjacent piping.
  • The pump foundation will be removed from the ground.
  • The tank will be degassed.
  • The interior of the tank(s) will be cleaned of residual traces of petroleum products.
  • The tank will be cut up if possible and disposed of in accordance with Federal and State EPA regulation.
