Gasoline Tanker Emergency Response
Confidential Client – Southwest Missouri
Sunbelt responded to gasoline tanker truck accident that resulted in a 2500-gallon gasoline release, with the contents of the tanker draining directly to the subsurface at a right-of-way location in Lawrence County, Missouri. Sunbelt responders opened or "cold tapped" the tanker compartments for transfer of remaining gasoline to transporters. Excavation of 250 cubic yards of soil for disposal at landfill was completed and a soil vapor extraction system operated for removal of subsurface gasoline vapor.
Groundwater and soil contamination investigation and risk assessment is being accomplished by shallow and deep monitoring well installation, private well sampling, hydrogeologic evaluations and identification of current and future potential risks.
