|Description||The Washington State Department of Ecology seeks your input on the draft Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) for the BNSF Railway Black Tank Property May 22 through June 22, 2017. The RI documents the extent and locations of petroleum contamination in soil and groundwater at the site. The FS evaluates cleanup options.
The site housed a 50-foot-diameter, above-ground black tank that stored petroleum products, primarily the thick, heavy oil known as bunker C for fueling trains. Today, there are five areas of soil contamination ranging from the surface to 15 feet underground. From 15 feet underground to the water table, a 9,150-square-foot area of soil is contaminated. This is the pathway through which the petroleum traveled from the surface to groundwater. As a result, an approximate 7-acre plume of petroleum rests on groundwater about 170 feet underground.
