Nisey’s Bait & Tackle, a former gasoline station located in the Florida Panhandle, was recognized as a petroleum release site more than 30 years ago. The release was reported in 1990, stemming from the property’s underground storage tank (UST) system. Property owners of the site later applied and became eligible for state cleanup funds under the Abandoned Tank Restoration Program (ATRP). Advanced Environmental Technologies, LLC (AET), a leading environmental consulting and engineering firm based in the Southeast, completed a site assessment to define the magnitude and extent of the petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) contamination at the site in 2002. In 2006, an air sparge/multi-phase extraction (AS/MPE) system was installed, running for several years until suspending its operation due to state budget cuts. A Remedial Action Plan (RAP) was submitted in 2010 to modify the MPE system for reinjection of the treated water. The system ran for two years, was shut down for several years, modified, and restarted in early 2017. While in use, the AS/MPE system provided significant reductions to PHC concentrations, but was unable to meet required cleanup levels. As a result, the system was permanently shut off at the close of 2017.
