Proposal details

Liquid Fuels Handling Code (LFHC) Requirements that Would Not be Met:

2.4.2.1. Where an underground storage tank is out of service for 2 years or more, the owner

of the tank system or the owner of the property on which the tank is located shall

remove the tank and piping from the ground.

 

Why the Code Could Not be Met

A secondary tank wall has failed. Removal of the tank could affect integrity of adjacent tanks because of high water table.

 

Safety Assessment

  • Selected soil samples and groundwater samples were submitted to Bureau Veritas Laboratories (BV Labs), an accredited laboratory for analysis of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes (BTEX) and petroleum hydrocarbon fractions 1 to 4 (PHC F1-F4). Concentrations of BTEX and PHC F1 to F4 in the submitted soil and groundwater samples met the applicable site condition standards.

 

  • Primary and secondary tank spaces are to be vacuumed out, gas vapours purged, vent and fill piping removed, and the tank filled with concrete.

 

TSSA assesses that there is likely to be no environmental impact should these variances be granted.
