Nevada City Leaking Tank Site Cleanup Complete

Downtown Nev City.jpgIn November 1993, five underground storage tanks (USTs) were removed from the old corner gas station at 436 Broad Street in downtown Nevada City. The building is now a successful real estate office.   Gas, diesel and other petroleum hydrocarbons was discovered at to have leaked into the soil and ground water at that time.  During over-excavation activities, one additional 200-gallon UST was discovered and removed. 
Between June 1997 and May 2010 six monitoring wells were installed at the Site (four onsite and two offsite) along with the performance of ten soil borings and 12 soil vapor borings.  Geocon Consultants Inc. (Geocon) conducted oxygen injection into MW-2 and MW-4 from July 2006 until January 2009.  Oxygen injection was suspended to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment and determine if additional action was necessary. 
All domestic wells within a 2,000-foot radius were evaluated to ensure that there no public health threat remains from this release. Additional recent groundwater and human health risk assessments data clearly indicated that the site was a candidate for a low risk closure as prescribed by the State Water Resources Control Board. Environmental Health staff are pleased to have facilitated the cleanup and accelerated the final closure of this site to the benefit of our community.
