Who were those guys out on the empty lot with trucks that said "Environmental Sampling Services LLC"?

They are the experts helping us clean up the ground water under the surface of the lot. The previous longtime user, Greyhound Bus Lines, had underground diesel tanks there to fuel their buses. Although they removed the tanks well before CCA purchased the property, at least one of the tanks had leaked some fuel. We know this because there are 14 wells out there that the current work crew are monitoring to make sure that they clean up any residual material. This work has been going on continuously since CCA assumed ownership of the property, and it needs to be completed before we can occupy the space.
