Project Name: UST Removal
Location: Alamitos Energy
Job Type: Underground Storage Tank Removal
E&E was contracted to clean and remove a concrete sump/clarifier. During an initial investigation, it was discovered that the concrete sump/clarifier was in fact a larger, 10,000 gallon, fiberglass, underground storage tank. Once the contents and volume were determined, E&E worked with local authorities to obtain the proper permits to safely excavate and remove the UST. Once removed, the excavation site was backfilled with certified clean soil.
Safety – Underground high voltage cable ran perpendicular to the excavation site
Coordination – The presence of other contractors, performing work concurrently made scheduling inter-communications a priority.
Training & Permits – Site-specific training and permits were required daily.
