Abstract:

Replacement of the current 1800 gallon per minute gpm Type II jet fuel hydrant system with a new 1800 gpm Type III jet fuel system. The Proposed Action consists of the construction of a 1,800 gallon per minute GPM jet fuel JP 8 hydrant system. The work includes the installation of up to 2,356 meters 8,000 feet of eight inch coated carbon steel pipe to transfer the JP 8 from the bulk storage facilities to the hydrant tanks and the installation of 1,160 meters 3,820 feet of twelve inch coated carbon steel pipe composing the hydrant system. A new pumphouse will be constructed in the bulk storage yard to replace the existing pumphouse 404. This pumphouse will include four offload stands and two fillstands and a fuel recovery system. The fuel recovery system will include a 4,000 gal underground tank, located north of the building. A new pumphouse will also be constructed on the airfield to replace the existing pumphouse 736. This pumphouse will include two 475,000 liter 2,500 Barrel storage tanks with concrete secondary containment, a fuel recovery system and a hydrant hose truck checkout stand. The fuel recovery system will include a 4,000 gal underground tank located to the west of the building Pumphouse 404 and existing truck fill and load fill stands will be demolished including associated piping equipment, slabs and foundation to four feet below grade. Abandoned piping left in place will be cleaned and grouted before abandonment. Pumphouse 736 will be demolished including associated piping equipment, slabs and foundation to four feet below grade including the removal of the six 267,000 liter 50,000 gal underground storage tanks.
