RIDEM LUST Closure & Soil Management
As a member of the RIDOT Apponaug Circulator Project, we were contracted by Cardi Corporation to close a large concrete fuel bunker (200,000-gallons) along with (2) 20,000 and (2) 1,000 gallon steel underground fuel tanks and to manage associated tank wastes and residually impacted subsurface soil. The LUST closure project was initiated through our RIDEM MPA #309 contract.
The abandoned fuel storage system was formerly part of a large mill complex system. The LUST closure included the off-site disposal of approximately 180,000-gallons of petroleum impacted water and sludge. An additional 2,000-cubic yards of petroleum impacted soil is being managed on-site under a RIDEM beneficial use determination. All closure activities will be managed in accordance with the RIDEM UST Regulations.
