Project Summary

Blackstone Environmental, Inc. provided turnkey environmental consulting services to an existing client with respect to acquisition of an adjoining, former gasoline station property for redevelopment. The Client desired to purchase a property that had recently closed and been used as a filling station since about 1931. Property issues included recent use as a filling station/convenience store, three 8,000-gallon USTs present on site requiring closure, and prior assessment work conducted by the State identified that a release to soil and groundwater had occurred on the property. Blackstone assisted the Client in navigating the process to mitigate potential environmental liabilities.
