Cause of Impact
There are 3 kerosene storage tanks beneath the building of the Concord kerosene store at No.33, Chung Hau Street, Ho Man Tin with potential land contamination due to its operation.
A borehole was conducted on the existing slope adjacent to the storage tanks in accordance to the endorsed Contamination Assessment Plan (CAP) (and a Supplementary CAP). The findings of the land contamination assessment indicated that there was no exceedance of the relevant Risk-based Remediation Goals (RBRGs) of the soil and groundwater samples collected in this EIA study. It was recommended that when the permission for access is granted at the time when the land is resumed, a reconnaissance site visit should be carried out to review whether further site investigations would be required.
