Underground Storage Tank (UST) Closure Services

Owner/Client: MOHELA
Location: Chesterfield, Missouri
Services: Environmental

During parking lot construction at the Missouri Higher Education and Loan Authority (MOHELA) headquarters in Chesterfield, Missouri, an unregistered heating oil underground storage tank (UST) was discovered. Although heating oil USTs are unregulated in the State of Missouri, Geotechnology assisted MOHELA in contacting an environmental contractor to remove the UST in an expedited manner so that construction activities could continue. Geotechnology provided UST removal observations, closure sampling and reporting to document the removal for MOHELA. The UST was removed within 10 days of discovery, and the contractors were able to proceed with parking lot construction in the area of the tank.
