Mississauga First nation - Gas Bar Tank Removal

Mississauga First Nation has an abandoned gas bar, known formally as Willey's Gas Bar, which has underground storage tanks still in the ground. The previous owner has indicated that he does not have the funds to remove these tanks, and is in violation of Environment Canada storage tank laws. Mississauga First Nation will be removing these tanks, and removing any contaminated soil associated with these tanks as part of a remediation process for this site. A TSSA certified contractor will be utilized for pulling the tanks, and will be overseen by an engineering company. The tanks will be decomissioned and disposed of, as per TSSA regulations, and clean fill will be backfilled into the hole.  The final product will be a site free of petroleum hydrocarbons, and no further impact from underground storage tanks.
