The Pooler City Council tonight will consider the approval of an engineering proposal to fix leaking storage tanks underneath a former gas station where the city plans to build a new, multimillion dollar government office complex.
Three underground gasoline tanks have contaminated groundwater at the defunct Texaco gas station off U.S. 80 behind City Hall. The proposal under consideration would allow Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung to close the tanks and clean up petroleum contamination to obtain no further action status from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.
The state agency’s clearance is necessary before the city can build its new City Hall government office complex.
The environmental division of Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung, an engineering consulting and architectural design firm, has proposed a $349,925 contract to manage the work.
