WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council has approved an agreement with West Central Environmental Consultants of Morris to conduct soil borings where contamination was found during removal of an underground diesel fuel tank at the site of the old wastewater treatment plant.

In June, the city retained West Central Environmental Consultants for $5,959 to conduct a limited site investigation. During removal of the tank, soil contamination was found, resulting in the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency requesting the limited site investigation.

The firm prepared a change order in an amount not to exceed $3,054 to conduct additional soil borings to further define the small amount of contamination that was identified in the investigation, according to Holly Wilson, city public works director.

The agreement was approved Monday night, and the work was conducted this week.
