Abstract: To achieve compliance with Federal and state underground storage tank (UST) regulations, the U.S. Army Engineer District, St. Louis decided to remove USTs at Illinois lake sites. The decision was to remove, rather than upgrade, all Corps-owned USTs in the St. Louis District and replace them, where needed, with aboveground storage tanks. During the removal process, leaking USTs were identified at the Illinois lakes of Shelbyville, Carlyle, and Rend. In June 1993, soil borings and samples were taken at each tank location. Laboratory results indicated soil contamination at the lake sites was greater than Illinois regulatory limits. All USTs were removed in May and June 1994. This report documents the design and testing of methods to treat soil contaminated by POLs onsite by enhancing aerobic decomposition. The St. Louis District and USACERL developed an inexpensive, easily accomplished method for treating occasional instances of POL-contaminated soil. The method may be of interest to other Corps Districts and military installations.
