Tank Removal Design-Build
Auburn, Maine


Auburn-Lewiston Airport


The Project:

In 1992, the Auburn-Lewiston Airport installed two Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)–a 12,000-gallon jet fuel and 12,000-gallon aviation gasoline–within the apron east of the visitor’s parking lot and airport administration building. The tanks were contained within a concrete containment vault below the associated fuel dispensers. The owner requested Gale to design and prepare specifying documents for the solicitation of design-build teams to complete the decommissioning and removal of the two USTs, including reconstruction of the FBO Ramp, in accordance with all applicable MaineDEP, FAA, MaineDOT, and the City of Auburn, Maine regulations.
