Expert UST Removal Services in El Paso, TX – Ensuring Compliance and Safety

VERTEX was retained by the client to remove three out of service underground storage tanks (USTs) at a warehousing facility in El Paso, Texas that was under Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) investigation for noncompliance. Upon inspection, VERTEX observed that the USTs were partially underneath an enclosed former truck wash and fueling bay. VERTEX determined that removal of the USTs would leave the building structurally unstable, and since the building was out of service, the client also retained VERTEX to assist in building demolition. To maintain compliance with Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) asbestos survey and notification requirements for the demolition of buildings, VERTEX conducted an asbestos containing material (ACM) survey of the building prior to demolition. Based on laboratory samples submitted for analysis, it was determined that the building did not contain ACM. The building was demolished with no issues noted. Prior to UST removal, VERTEX assisted the client in changing the UST registration into the client’s ownership. Once the USTs were properly registered, VERTEX removed the tanks, associated piping, and oil/water separator in compliance with TCEQ regulations. The area was backfilled and refinished to match the surrounding paved parking lot. After UST removal, a release determination letter (RDR) was submitted to the TCEQ indicating no release has occurred at the site. The project concluded with a TCEQ No Further Action letter.
