FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) — State regulators have approved a remediation plan for the site of a former oil station in Marion County.

The 8.7-acre property in Rachel is owned by Pennzoil Quaker State.

Department of Environmental Protection project manager Pasupathy Ramanan tells The Times-West Virginian (http://bit.ly/1i4UoAH ) that the property formerly was used to collect oil, pump it through pipelines and transport it to companies.

Eight above-ground storage tanks have been removed from the site of the former Shell Downs Station. The property is now vacant and Pennzoil plans to leave it as open or green space.

Ramanan says an environmental assessment found some petroleum contaminants in groundwater.

The remediation plan specifies that the groundwater can't be used.
