It could cost as much as $295,000 to remove and dispose of underground storage tanks owned by Taylor County, the county board of supervisors learned last week.
According to Robert Nelson of Wisconsin Central Engineering, the county has 15 underground tanks that will have to be removed to comply with new state regulations.
Several of the tanks that Taylor County owns - the Highway Department, airport, etc. - have been in the ground for many years, and may have contaminated the soil, If so, PEDFA (Petroleum Environmental Cleanup Fund Act) money is available to help clean up the contamination.
