A Langley City site that has housed a Husky gas station since 1987 is being torn up.
The station at 200th Street and 56th Avenue closed in March, and the site is being cleared.
"Husky is leasing the site, which will be returned to the owner after any required remediation is complete," explained Husky media relations official Kim Guttormson.
The building has been demolished and the underground fuel tanks removed.
"As part of closing the station we will be removing the underground tanks and lines, and assessing what remediation measures might be required," she said. "The site work will comply with provincial regulations and Husky uses best industry practices."
The company wouldn't provide specifics about the work that needs to be done such as the extent of contamination and whether contamination has spread to adjacent properties.
"Site remediation is a staged process, so at this time I wouldn't be able to provide a timeline," Guttormson said.
