Harrison Avenue tanks mitigated, left in ground

Tribune staff report

Three underground fuel tanks found as part of the Harrison Avenue rebuild in South Lake Tahoe are being left in place.

Sierra Nevada Construction pumped the tanks out Tuesday and filled them with concrete Wednesday.

A tank unearthed at the corner of Alameda and Harrison was an old heating fuel tank. Two tanks extending under the building that houses South Tahoe Standup Paddle were old gasoline tanks.

The 4-by-10-foot tanks were found to be not leaking and in good enough shape to be mitigated in place, rather than removed from the ground as an environmental hazard.

Road work in that area of the Harrison Avenue project resumed Thursday.
