A Phase 1 environmental site assessment by ERAS indicated two underground tanks had been removed in the late 1980's from the site. Soil borings drilled near the former USTs and pump island indicated high concentrations of petroleum hydrocarbons near the groundwater table. The Property was therefore an active leak case that could not be financed until it was closed by the local regulatory agency, the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD).
ERAS conducted a soil and groundwater investigation to provide additional analytical data regarding the lateral and vertical extent of fuel hydrocarbons and MTBE in soil and groundwater. Following data collection, extensive file review analysis was conducted to supplement the site data, provide groundwater flow direction and analysis of down-gradient receptors. Case closure was granted by the SCVWD within 60 days of the initiation of the proposed work.
