UST Removal – Chicago (Wrigleyville)

Removal of (3) 1,000 gallon storage tanks from a parking lot prior to re-development by a real estate company.

Project Facts

  • This tank removal was a one-day project in a parking lot directly across from Wrigley field.
  • Our team excavated three 1,000 gallon storage tanks that had not been in use since 1973.

Project Tasks

  • We excavated and recycled pavement as disposable material
  • Pumped and removed remaining tank contents and purged the tanks of any potentially flammable vapors
  • After removing the tanks from the ground we removed all associated piping/venting
  • Our team then backfilled the empty tank pit with excavated soils and crushed stone to grade

This project was completed on time and without incident.
