Zephyr Cove Resort fuel tanks being removed

Provided to the Tribune

Zephyr Cove, Nev – The U.S. Forest Service is working with ARAMARK Parks and Destinations to pull three underground fuel storage tanks from the ground and remove contaminated soil at Zephyr Cove Resort following the discovery of a fuel leak in June.

The Forest Service and ARAMARK coordinated closely with the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in deciding to proceed with the excavation after the grading season to take advantage of the low groundwater table, according to a statement from the Forest Service.

Work will continue through Dec. 16 and possibly longer if weather permits. An inclement weather plan is in place to guide the installation of erosion control measures if work must stop due to rain or snow.

Zephyr Cove Resort is open for business as usual. The work will be visible to motorists on U.S. Highway 50 and to resort visitors.
