Benzol Tank Demolition

03/05/09 An empty tank located on the Coke Ovens site is being removed today to allow remediation activities to continue on the site.

B. Curry and Sons Construction Ltd., Sydney, will take about two days to demolish the structure and about two weeks to cut the metal into sizes suitable for recycling or scrap.

The tank was once used to store Benzol, a byproduct from the making of coke. The tank hasn't been used since the 80s and was cleaned of all residue. A hazardous materials assessment was conducted and it was determined to be free of contaminants. An air monitoring program is underway and will continue during all site activities.

The tendered project is being implemented under the direction of Nova Scotia Lands Inc.
