Effective response to an oil spill requires trained technical staff, skillful coordination of resources, and a dedicated team of response professionals. E-Tank was called on to supply Roll-Off Boxes, Frac Tank, and a 3” pump & hose to a VA Armory to facilitate the clean up of an oil spill. With the price of copper climbing, thieves began disassembling an old transformer that was sitting at the Armory awaiting proper disposal. But the transformer was filled with PCB oil.
As they began ripping the transformer apart, a large amount of PCB-contaminated oil spilled out at the site which was near the Olentangy River, making local news headlines. An Environmental Remediation company was summoned to respond to the spill. They called E-Tank to provide solids containment for the contaminated soil and groundwater. More than 30 Roll-Offs, 21k Frac Tank, and a 3” pump & hose were delivered by E-Tank to the spill site on an emergency basis. In a situation like this, a quick and effective response is required to minimize the risk to public health and the environment. E-Tank was a valuable partner and assisted with the efficient remediation of the contaminated spill site.
