KGET.com (California): Program at Flying J for groundwater cleanup to resume in a month

BAKERSFIELD – A program to clean up groundwater contaminated by an MTBE spill at the Flying J Refinery years ago will resume in about a month.

The system pulling the now-banned gasoline additive from the groundwater was shutdown two years ago when Shell Oil sold the refinery to Flying J.

State officials said Shell has been slow in building an incineration plant at the refinery to burn off the MTBE vapors extracted from the soil and groundwater.

Shell said it’s waiting on PG&E to provide a separate power source for the project.
