The Highland County Land Bank has collaborated with the Ohio Department of Development, Tetra Tech and Thompson Petroleum to complete the UST system removal, building demolition and disposal of petroleum-contaminated soil at the former Rocky Fork Truck Stop.
To accomplish this project, the Highland County Land Bank has received funding through the Brownfield program through the Ohio Department of Development (ODD). According to the ODD, this program has been designed to provide grants for the remediation of Brownfield sites across Ohio to clean up the sites and prepare them for future economic development.
Matthew Wagner, a program manager at Tetra Tech, a consulting and engineering firm has been a partner in this collaboration as Tetra Tech provided grant support, certified professional support and conducted VAP Phase I & Phase II environmental site assessment, asbestos survey, and geophysical survey for the former Rocky Fork Truck Stop.
Thompson Petroleum, an underground storage tank installation and removal company was awarded this project.
The property owners appreciate the collaboration with all stakeholders and are eager to start new development.
