Brownfields Success Story: Cougar Corner - St. Anthony

Cougar Corner 1
June 2008 - Former Cougar Corner, 505 S. Bridge St., St. Anthony, Idaho

Site Background

The former Cougar Corner located at 505 South Bridge Street in St. Anthony has been a fuel service station for about 30 years. The station was foreclosed on in summer 2007 and has been vacant since. In 2008, the owner submitted a Brownfields assessment application to DEQ so potential purchasers’ environmental concerns would be alleviated.

Site Investigation Process

Cougar Corner 2
June 2009 - Tank Excavation

Through the Brownfields program, DEQ contracted with Strata, Inc. to perform a Phase I Assessment to discover where the current tanks were located beneath the ground and to see if there were any other environmental concerns. A Phase II Assessment was conducted on the property following the results of the Phase I Assessment. The Phase II Assessment consisted of collecting soil, ground water, and vapor samples and issuing a report that summarized activities. The report was finalized September 2009.

Site Cleanup

The site does not need cleanup but does have a deed restriction to prevent ground water extraction.

Redevelopment Plans

The site has been sold and will be redeveloped.
