Sugar Bowl Parking Garage


Sugar Bowl Ski Resort

The two story parking garage at Sugar Bowl overlies a former petroleum fueling facility. In 1991 an unauthorized release was reported and approximately 300 cubic yards of contaminated soil was excavated and aerated on site. Soil vapor extraction (SVE) was conducted in the upper garage area from August 2004 through November 2011. This system was succesful in removing 12,295 pounds of vapor-phase fuel hydrocarbons.  The lower garage are also had an SVE system implemented, which removed 20,850 pounds of vapor-phase fuel hydrocarbons.  In addition to the SVE systems, eight groundwater monitoring wells had been regularly monitored for over 10 years as of 2014. All groundwater monitoring wells have been non-detect for petroleum constituents since 2008. Based on the low or undetectable contamination levels in the soil and groundwater around the site, the State Water Resources Board deemed the Sugar Bowl site did not pose a risk to human or environmental health. Subsequently, the Water Board released their regulatory closure letter for the site in November 2013.
