Former Gilly’s Inn Corrective Action Plan
15 North State Street
Ferron, Utah
Notice of Corrective Action

A complaint of gasoline odors originating from the storm water system located on the former Gilly’s Inn property was reported to the Division of Water Quality (DWQ) in 2014. It was

determined that a release had occurred originating from the premium gasoline product line located between the above-ground storage tank (AST) system north of the Gilly’s convenience store and the dispenser islands located along the western portion of the site near State Street.

A Corrective Action Plan (CAP) has been developed to properly address the gasoline-impacted soils and groundwater.

Site Description

The property is located at 15 North State Street, Ferron, Utah, and was formerly occupied by the Gilly’s Inn & Convenience Store (Gilly’s). The property has recently been sold to a new owner and is now labeled as the “Big Mountain Lodge.

Cleanup Measures

The selected corrective action approach includes excavation and removal of petroleum-impacted soils exceeding the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (UDEQ) Tier 1 Screening Levels for petroleum hydrocarbons in soil.

This approach was selected as a practical means to address soil and groundwater impacts where identified at concentrations above Tier 1 Screening Levels based on the following considerations:

• Soil removal is a highly effective and practical method of achieving soil cleanup levels within a relatively short timeframe;

• Removal of the soils with Tier 1 exceedances will reduce an ongoing source of groundwater contamination.

Confirmation soil samples will be collected at the extent of the excavation to document theconcentrations of impacts remaining in soils at the walls and floor of the excavation. Excavated

soils will be transported to a nearby private property to be land farmed.
