Charlottesville Oil Cleanup on Rt. 250W

David Fitt, a Senior Hydrogeologist at the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, notified Charlottesville Tomorrow today that he had recently approved the “Corrective Action Order” related to the cleanup of Charlottesville Oil’s site just West of the Boar’s Head Inn on Route 250.  Charlottesville Oil has until November 28, 2005 to remove about 1,000 tons of contaminated soil from the site.  As some of that soil is under the storage tanks, the Virginia DEQ expects the storage tanks to be removed as well, although that was not specifically required in the order.  Further, additional ground water monitoring wells will have to be installed to monitor water quality.
