Good Government

Recommend approval of a contract with Central Industries Inc. in an amount not to exceed $80,000 to remove the diesel and gas pumps and four underground fuel tanks at the old City Lot, as well as perform any necessary remediation, and manage regulatory closeout with the State Department of Natural Resources.

With the new Floyd Adams Jr. City Services Complex up and running, the existing fuel pumps at City Lot will be abandoned and must be taken out of service. The contract includes $55,335 to remove existing pumps, remove the underground tanks, provide the closure report, and backfill the area where the tanks were located. Once the fuel tanks are removed, Central Industries will check the soil for contamination. If there is no contamination, no additional work is needed. If there is additional contamination, then the contract will allow for remediation costs of up to $24,665 to remove the soils and dispose at the proper landfill. 

The scope of work includes removing two 10,000-gallon underground diesel tanks and two 10,000-gallon underground gas tanks. Central Industries will blow dry the lines and air dry the tanks, disconnect and remove the tank hardware, and prep the tanks for removal by using dry ice to get rid of vapors. The two fuel islands will be removed along with the vent lines, and the busted concrete from the fuel islands will be hauled away. The excavation will be filled in with soil and topped with crush and run. Central Industries will prepare and submit the underground storage tank closure report to the State DNR.

Central Industries (1415 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd., Savannah, GA) (B) $55,335
