The Lebanon Airport has replaced its 1994 2,000-gallon diesel oil underground storage system with a new 2,000-gallon above-ground system with the current monitoring devices and safeguards. The airport was working on design of required upgrades to its 24-year old system, when it changed from upgrading an old system to entirely replacing it with all new equipment. The airport prepared a new Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan, obtained the design permit and Authorization To Operate permit from the NH Department of Environmental Services.
The project involved a installation of a new system by the airport’s fire station and will involve removal of the existing underground system in the Spring.
The LEB Airport would like to thank Lakes Region Environmental Contractors of Belmont for construction and permitting; Christopher P. Williams, PE of Moretown, VT for SPCC Plan preparation and permitting, MG Electric of Enfield for electrical and controls work, and R & S Asphalt Paving of Sunapee for paving.
Evans Group, Inc. of Enfield filled the new tank for the first time on January 26, 2018. The LEB pumped its first diesel from the new system to one of Granite Air Center’s aircraft refuelers and later to the airport’s large airfield snowblower.
