Portland is home to so many great urban villages that are magnets that hold onto  old time residents  and attract new immigrants from all over the US drawing new families into playing the roles that our mothers and fathers  filled on behalf of the community during  their lifetimes.

My good friend Margaret grew up in Beaumont.  Her family came from the midwest bringing good midwestern values. Her dad owned the local pharmacy on the corner of 41st and Freemont.  She shared many adoring  stories about her dad who was active in the local village  supporting the activities  of numerous Church’s on behalf of families in need and  the greater city community.  Sounds a lot like today doesn’t it with our many amazing nonprofits serving  the challenged members of Portland’s communities.

 

 

 

My church is nearby Beaumont often is a destination for  last minute  nourishment, health and services  before our evening worship.  Last week I was intrigued what new discoveries were to be found in the village.

 Is Your Oil Tank Leaking?

What's underneath your flower bed an oil  tank

What's underneath your flower bed a tank


Yesterday I had the opportunity I did my 375th inspection and  interviewed an environmental company while they were testing the soil of a tank on one of my listings.

A   steel pike was used to find edge and depth of tank.Two soil samples were  taken within 6 inches of the center of each end of the tank, at a depth range of 0″-24″ below the bottom of the tank.  This was done with  Hand Auger and a Direct Push Core Sampler.

I asked the inspector about the durability of tanks and what parts of the city had the most failures.

 

It is totally  dependent upon the type of tank , its placement , location and  the porosity of the soils. The West hills are mostly clay and hold water. Other locations like  Lake Oswego  and West Linn are l and rocky and porous.

This 1955 tank was installed  between  a  faucet  and gutter drain creating  additional water exposure.  The inspector guessed  this tank was  6 feet long and 500 gallon tank. Most tanks like this from between 1920 and 1950 are 10 gage metal and hold up better than the newer tanks that are harder steel and lighter gage.

Does Your Oil Tank look Like This

I had previously believed  any soil readings over 50 parts per million diesel hydrocarbons was reportable and needed  additional  decontamination.   Determining remediation appropriate proceedures  is quite complex and it is not only based on levels of hydrocarbons, but the kind of chemicals found.  Benzine and or tph total petroleum hydrocarbons  trigger  a higher concern than normal diesel oil findings.   A reportable release for DEQ is  over  50 parts per million.

I had always thought finding water in the tank was a bad omen.   The inspector demonstrated how they check for remaining oil and water in the tank. The tank is tilted slight at the oil deliver pipe end.  Making it easier to determine fluid levels.   He coated the end of a tape measure with a detector paste to read the  amount of water. This tank had only about 1/2 an inch of oil and 1/4 of water.

Where Is Your Oil Tank Located?

Where Is Your Oil Tank Located?

 

There is a theory  different types of lines used in the tanks create  a electrical conduit to draw water into the tank . Steel is preferable to copper.  Quite often conditions do allow for a tank to be  decommissioned in place.  All fluids are removed and interior is scrubbed clean. The tank is filled with inert material and covered .  A DEQ certificate is obtained  for you by your environmental company.

Don’t know if you have a tank in the ground, call me for a referral for a complimentary tank finding search.  From a local specialist;

The Generic Remedy cleanup option is a simplified Risk Based Decision process . The unique features of the Generic Remedy are:
1. No groundwater is encountered2. Soil sampling demonstrates that no more than 65 cubic yards of contaminated soil remains on the site.3. All contaminated soil is located at least 3’ below ground surface.

4. The most contaminated soil remaining on site contains less than 10,000 ppm TPH and less than 0.0083 ppm benzene

5. No PAH analysis is required

6. If the most contaminated soil samples shows petroleum concentrations below 2500ppm no BTEX analysis is required.

 

There are numerous factors determining whether removal of a tank is necessary.  Your environmental company will assess those factors and appraise you of the options.

 OIL TANK INSURANCE DO YOU HAVE IT?

We discussed  TANK INSURANCE .  Evidently standard insurance primarily covers exposure that affects a neighbors property. Not the homeowners  decommissioning  process.  Many of my clients also have paid a premium for peace of mind protection to their Oil delivery companies for years. However,  those long term payments offer little or no protection for future tank soil contamination issues.

Three Lake Oswego neighbors decided to make an amtrak pilgrimage to their closest major league baseball park Safeco field in Seattle. One was an avid lifetime an LA  fan  wearing his lucky Dodger jacket.

The third was much more surrendered without any affiliation looking for the sublime.  The primary goal was to put a face and personality to the Mariner/Dodger radio commentaries and morning box scores. landscaping artists No hitter  in Seattle beneath the Spring Street Center

Our ‘want to be hero’s’ faces and forms took shape as they performed their own unique ballet calisthenics in the outfield. Batting styles honed and perfected since little league brought color, character and personality to early morning sports page statistics. Retracting Roof No hitter  in Seattle beneath the Spring Street Center

In a game that seemed at first that there were more transient LA Dodger fans than Mariners in the stands  for the first three or four innings. Things changed dramatically in between bites of chicken pad and by the sixth inning. The seats were finally filling with some of the more rabid M’s fans starting to drown out the Dodger blue. visitors dugout  No hitter  in Seattle beneath the Spring Street Center

Suddenly Millwoods Babe Ruths full figured form was gone and a possie of middle inning closers marched to the mound in the winter like late innings.

A pacific crowd united in a sea of waving arms, oooing mouths in delightful surprise. Each out, each pitch and the eternal space inbetween were chapters in an unfolding historic movie script. Eric the manager wedged each pitcher who put each Dodger to sleep just as the right time. The creshendo reached a high after Wilhelm Son struck out the first two batters strike by strike.  Like a great gasps and deep pushes the crowd let out great bursts of sound inbetween dead silence at the ball left the pitchers hand dancing 90 feet into the glove of young ex yankee Montero.Seattles Revenge no hitter beneath the Spring Street Center

Discover the Soul of Portland Home to the Heroic Montavilla Village

Discover  the heart of Montavilla  Village Portland Oregon  where the humanity of all affirmed and  ideologies roundly condemned.

Far in the past 2006 or so , folks have passionately discussed what special sauce  Hobie and Pete of he Bipartisan Café  put into their Coconut Maretto Cream and 46 variety of pies.  Some shout out from the previous century that pies are the food of the heroic!haris wolfgang montavilla bipartisan

 

Portland style heroic could be a rather grim task to describe. However,  Pete and Hobie attract heroic 20th century partisans to meet for pie and wifi.

 

Under 14′ Ceilings of antique pine , chained to laptops, and  iphones  students and locals  are transfixed by their deep dish  Banana Creams, pumpkin oranges, Chocolate Butterscotches, Sour Cream Apples, Peaches and Cream s and  40 other pie  varieties enjoying grandma’s ultimate health food  and  good conversation.

An eclectic mix of partisans and I bet non partisans  commune with their computers  and wireless instruments no doubt profoundly inspired  by a fantastic mix of framed portraits  Millard Filmore, James K Polk, someone who looks a lot like Chester Arthur,  or his cousin Rutherford B Hayes,  Harrison,  and the best looking of the presidents Dwight Eisenhower,  Gene McCarthy, Kennedy and Johnson, Geronimo, Hunkapapa and Chief Joseph.  A huge copy of the Declaration of Independence rests beside various proclamations and curled campaign posters covering  the massive 1912 Anspach buildings vintage walls.

The Hedges SE Division South of Hawthorne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first experience at the Hedges was some years ago meeting some clients who frequented this popular hangout.   We met and wrote up an offer on a property.  A micro brews followed our successful negotiations making the evening feel warm and rosy with Fools Golden Ale.

The 2nd time I visited , I approached a fellow talking on his cell on the giant front porch overlooking the lawn, I asked if he was the owner and he said just hangs out there living around the corner but is at the hedges as much as at home.

Vintage Homes and Dwelling available inner SE

I enjoyed watched customers line up and come in and waving at the patrons as they entered heading for their favorite  rustic wooden tables. I meandered out to the front porch and into a large outdoor covered tent area behind the front lawn area  populated by several families comfortably camped out waiting for their  Proletariat Red or Sockeye Cream Stout brews and hearty grub. Kids and dogs are welcome.

The Hedges and sister micro brewerys  offer  seasonal  special micro brews.

Dagda a Pan Gaelic Red – A Pan-Gaelic Red Ale that has a malty body with caramel flavors and a touch of smoke with a tart finish.

Mai Bock a Traditional German Style Lager. This traditional German spring style lager was brewed with German Pilsner, Munich, and Vienna malts and Bavarian yeast. Pale orange in color with malty sweetness and a kiss of noble hops.

From their website;

The term “Public House” was used in Old England to describe homes that innkeepers, or publicans, who were seeking a warm meal, a cold (but not too cold) pint and possibly a comfy bed. While we don’t offer lodging (and can’t let you snooze in our booths), it is our intent to offer neighbors from near and far good food and good drink in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

 

A good public house should be an example of what sociologist Ray Oldenburg calls a “third place”- a friendly, comfortable haven where guests can leave behind the cares of the “first place” (home) and “second place”  work  and enjoy the company of friends while someone else cooks the food and does the dishes.
