UST Monitoring and Soil Sampling

As a testament to our responsiveness, A-Tech was called upon three days prior to field mobilization for construction activities to conduct environmental oversight and collect confirmation soil samples. Excavating soils that are presumed to be impacted by petroleum products requires air monitoring of the construction areas above the soil to comply with air quality authorities in various regions. Additionally, fire departments and cities oversee any project that involves UST removal or replacement. Depending on the site-specific permit, A-Tech executes the agency’s soil and air sampling plan.

A-Tech prepared a compliant work plan within two days and notified the appropriate agencies. Our professionally trained field personnel oversaw the excavation of one 10,000-gallon and two 8,000- gallon USTs and associated piping, dispensers, and vapor sumps. A-Tech executed the Pasadena Fire Department permit’s sampling plan and collected and analyzed a total of 31 soil samples to evaluate if there was a leakage from the USTs. A Tech’s flexibility assisted the client to expedite the environmental processes of the project and avoid delays in construction activities. High-quality of A-Tech’s reports and field documentation enabled our client to obtain closure with a quick
