Former K-Tire Beacon
Corning, CA
Civil-Environmental Engineering
Site Investigations, Remediation & Monitoring
Project Description:

H&A was retained to address groundwater pollution associated with an underground storage tank at the facility in Corning CA known as the Former K Tire Beacon.  The site was historically used as a gasoline fueling station.  As often is the case, UST can rust and develop leaks allowing the tanks’ contents to be released into the subsurface soil and/or groundwater. 

 

H&A’s scope of work included the installation and monitoring of groundwater wells and the development of remedial action to cleanup fuel constituents.  The selected remedy was injection of oxygen into the shallow water table to enhance microbial growth to degrade hydrocarbons.  Oxygen was supplied utilizing ISOC technology.  Pollutant concentrations declined.  The planned work and reporting in compliance with the California Regional Water Quality Control Board allowed the client to maintain full reimbursement with the State Cleanup Fund Program.
