P. Joseph Lehman Inc., Consulting Engineers was retained by Scotts Sporting Goods of James Creek, PA to remove two gasoline Underground Storage Tanks (USTs), associated piping and product dispensers from an operating retail sporting goods and convenience store.
The scope of this project was first to determine if the client would qualify for PA Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Fund (USTIF) reimbursement if gasoline impact was confirmed in soil or groundwater. We assisted the client in reviewing documents crucial to obtaining 100% USTIF coverage, and then provided oversight of the removal, regulatory sampling / reporting, and UST Closure Report preparation. Potential gasoline impact was identified in the field and soil and groundwater samples were collected for laboratory analysis. Laboratory analytical results confirmed the suspected release. The client secured 100% fund coverage for characterization and clean-up of the release. Lehman Engineers has completed the USTIF SCR-Work Plan, PA DEP SCR and PADEP RAP. Currently, we are writing the PADEP Remedial Action Completion Report (RACR) to obtain regulatory closure for this site.
