A backhoe lowers the beams from the former Tesoro gas station on Second Avenue on Monday, Sept. 25. Property owner Gregg Richmond said he isn't sure what the site will become.

Curtis Kiesel, who oversees the underground storage tank section of the Department of Environmental Conservation, said that an interim report on the contamination submitted on Aug. 28 was deficient, since the owners hadn't sampled soil from the area of the fuel pumps and the pipes leading to the tank.
