Public Notice - 205

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is initiating procurement procedures to obtain hydrogeological and engineering services for performance of investigations and corrective actions at sites where a petroleum release has occurred from an underground or aboveground storage tank system that has been determined to be eligible for the Alabama Underground and Aboveground Storage Tank Trust Fund and there is no viable tank owner to perform the regulatory requirements.  The services will be performed at one or more sites as assigned in the specific contract.

This work will be funded through the Alabama Underground and Aboveground Storage Tank Trust Fund.  Approved Alabama Tank Trust Fund Response Action Contractors will be selected to perform required services at various locations and the contract period will be two years from the date of contract execution and subject to renewal.

Approved Alabama Tank Trust Fund Response Action Contractors interested in being considered to provide these environmental services can obtain the “Instructions for Preparation and Submittal of Technical Proposal for Inactive Eligible Trust Fund Sites” from the Department’s web site at  The instructions are located in the ADEM Program, Waste Remediation and Underground Storage Tank, Tank Trust Fund section of the website.

The deadline for the submittal of technical proposals to ADEM by email at
