PROJECT OVERVIEW

Project Name: UST Removal

Location: Alamitos Energy

Job Type: Underground Storage Tank Removal

DESCRIPTION

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.

MAIN TASKS

CHALLENGES

Safety РUnderground 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.
