Thank you for downloading the Case Study: PetroFix Applied at Regional Airport Site to Treat BTEX
A Petroleum hydrocarbon release caused by leaking underground storage tanks (USTs) required remediation at the Dare County Regional Airport in Outer Banks, North Carolina. After the leak was discovered in 2008, a contractor removed two 50,000-gallon concrete underground storage tanks and four steel USTs that were previously used to store fuel at the site. Additionally, 455 tons of hydrocarbon-impacted soil and approximately 300 tons of sludge were excavated during the tank closure activities. Sampling performed at the time of the UST closures identified hydrocarbon-impacted soil at the locations of the concrete tanks and along the fuel distribution pipe.
