We Do the Impossible

Previously Abandoned-in-Place Due to Inaccessibility of Machines

Applied Service was hired to remove a tank by hand, which was previously abandoned-in-place in 2004 due to inaccessibility with machines. The tank was previously cut, cleaned out, and filled with pea gravel. It was sampled underneath at the time, so there wasn't any leakage. One of our smaller machines was lifted up to the work area by a larger machine, and a large part of the removal was performed by hand.
