Brookfield trustees have hired T and U Service Station Inc. of Brookfield to replace the township’s gasoline and diesel fuel storage tanks for $64,937.

The money will come from the township’s American Rescue Plan Act allotment of funds from the federal government.

The township will be responsible for removing the concrete from the old tanks, recycling the steel tanks and putting up a fence around the new tanks, said Road Supt. Jaime Fredenburg.

The diesel fuel tank has started leaking. The tanks were moved from Grove Street when the township moved its fire and road departments to their current home on Route 7 in 1997, said Police Chief Dan Faustino.

All township-owned vehicles, including the senior citizens van, fuel up at these tanks.

It will take an estimated 12 weeks to receive the tanks after they are ordered, and the tanks will have a 30-year life expectancy, Fredenburg said.
