96 Federal Street

Fuel Station Redevelopment

WHEM has been working with SB Collins on their 0.80-acre property at 96 Federal Street for several years. Formerly operated by Clarence Brown as a fueling station and junk yard, the property is in an industrial part of St. Albans adjacent to the railroad line and the historic New England Railroad roundhouse, at the southern end of the proposed Federal Street Multimodal Connector Project. The Site now has a new set of gasoline pumps, a new set of diesel pumps with 24- hr service, new paving/curbing, new utilities including an improved stormwater management system, and new landscaping.

Due to extensive petroleum contamination in soil and groundwater from former uses, WHEM developed a Corrective Action Plan that was approved by the VT DEC. The CAP involved removal of the seven (7) existing petroleum underground storage tanks (USTs) and piping, replacement with brand new USTs and piping, management of soil during the re-grading and utility installation, and installation of a remediation system.

The remediation system incorporates a soil vapor extraction (SVE) and air sparging (AS) system, with bi-weekly monitoring to optimize system effectiveness.
