Spring Farms Oil Tank Update

Spring Farms Oil Tank Leak

The tank was removed and a crack approximately one foot long was in the end of the tank near the bottom.  The tank hole is now excavated and the tank removed.  Huntingdon County Emergency Management was contacted and we asked that they inspect the hole and coordinate with DEP. 

The well water tests for the school and the closest residence do not reveal any petroleum products.
