Workers excavate seven tanks

PENN YAN—A total of seven old tanks have been excavated from 124 Elm St., Penn Yan, as of Monday, July 12. 
The property was formerly the site of McCredy Chevrolet dealership. Code Enforcement Officer Bruce Lyon said the work started Monday, and was part of an environmental remediation of the site. He added the permit was handled by the Department of Environmental Conservation.
Margarita Morehouse, code enforcement clerk, said Mike Worden, the property owner’s brother, was overseeing the work. Worden explained all the tanks are being removed, and some tested as part of the remediation. He explained the testing will take between two and three weeks. He said some of the tanks had a little fuel left in them.
Lyon explained some of the tanks were filled with stones when originally emptied to prevent them from collapsing. The tanks were removed both outside and inside the building.
Lyon added that this process is usually done to a building before a sale. He said he knew people were interested in buying the property, but said he knew nothing officially.
The building is currently owned by Edwin Worden. Worden had previously said he can’t divulge what the plans for the building include.
