15 years ago the club removed an old oil tanker that was buried outside the women's locker room. When they removed the tank it looked good, no cracks or leaks but still removed 95 tons of soil and replaced it with clean fill. What they couldn't do is remove the soil that was against the foundation of the building as this would have compromised the structure. As part of our environmental assessment, we had to sample this soil that was abutting the foundation to ensure it was not contaminated.
No problem we thought, a half day of work, we'll scope out a bucket see it's clean and we move on.
We already have 250 tons of contaminated material. What does a 250 tone hole look like?
Stay tuned who knows what will happen tomorrow.
