Project Description: KEAR was contracted to provide aviation fueling hydrant pit removal at PSHIA Terminal 4 N2 Concourse. The project involves the demolition of the existing hydrant pit 415 and its lateral pipe connection to the main loop around the N2 Concourse. To complete the demolition KEAR epressurized and isolated the pit from the existing system. A drain-down was then performed- removing over 10,000 gallons of jet fuel and returning it to the tank farm for re-filtration and re-use by the airlines. The existing concrete surface was then saw-cut and removed. The pit was then also excavated and removed. Soil sampling and tests were performed, along with full excavation of the existing hydrant lateral back to the fuel main loop. The existing lateral was then removed and capped, exposed pipe coated and tested, and the entire excavation backfilled. Lastly, KEAR poured back the concrete apron surface and sealed all exposed joints. The project was completed late September 2010.
