UST Reimbursement Fund

The Project.

Leighton has conducted over 50 environmental site assessments for G&M Oil at properties throughout southern California since 2002. The majority of the G&M sites that Leighton has worked on have been accepted by the State of California UST reimbursement fund.

Project Fact:

G&M Oil is a large independent operator of over 150 fuel stations throughout Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties.

The Leighton Solution.

We work closely with the local oversight agencies to ensure that the projects move forward to achieve G&M’s goal of regulatory closure. Leighton completes the reimbursement request forms for G&M and is well versed in all aspects of the UST reimbursement fund. We have closed seven G&M sites in the past seven years.

Our services have included soil boring and groundwater monitoring well installations, periodic groundwater monitoring, feasibility studies, soil vapor extraction (SVE) pilot tests and remediation, dual phase extraction (DPE), and Phase I ESAs.

During UST removals and soil excavations, Leighton performs air monitoring using our Various Locations Rule 1166 Contaminated Soil Mitigation Plan (Plan No. 447354). This plan allows excavation and removal of a maximum of up to 2,000 cubic yards of volatile organic compound (VOC) contaminated soil according to the excavation, handling, disposal, and monitoring requirements of this plan.
