DJ2 Tank Removal

Springville, NY

Project Objective

Encorus was contracted to provide complete environmental support services for the removal of a legacy gasoline tank discovered on the property. The 300 gallon single wall steel tank was discovered as part of a Village of Springville streetscape project.

Unique Project Features

The tank was immediately adjacent to the foundation walls of the structure. The tank required removal without compromising the integrity of the building, interrupting business within the building, or delaying the streetscape project.

Encorus Group Solution

Removal involved cleaning gasoline residue from the tank. Dry ice was deposited into the tank to remove any chance of explosion during removal. A qualified contractor was then brought in to cut the associated lines and life out the tank. The project was completed without interrupting business inside the building or delaying the streetscape project.
