Two 5,000 gallon USTs, installed in the 1950s, were uncovered during the pavement and building renovation for a 3rd Infantry Division tactical unit, causing a high risk of delays and potential loss of funds. Since the original thick bituminous asphalt exterior coatings were still intact, the steel shells had not deteriorated or leaked diesel or gasoline into the environment. The USTs were removed from the site with a modification to the construction contract and a clean closure action resulted with approval of a no further action required from the regulator.
