Underground Storage Tank (UST) Removal, Marlborough, MA
Tata & Howard coordinated a UST removal in Marlborough, Massachusetts. The results of subsequent soil testing indicate the presence of petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs) in soil at concentrations above the applicable RCS-1 reportable concentrations. A Limited Removal Action (LRA) was performed to address the PHC-contaminated soil. These activities were conducted in accordance with Massachusetts General Law (M.G.L.) c. 21E, the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP, 310 CMR 40.0000), and the Underground Storage Tank Regulations (310 CMR 80.00). Complications at this site included the presence of utilities over the UST and the close proximity of a sidewalk and road as can be seen from the photograph. Once the utilities were confirmed to be abandoned, T&H monitored the condition of the sidewalk and driveway in an effort to ensure that they were not damaged.
