When Steve Briggs and Steve Weiss, principals with SAI Contractors in Cabin John, worked with homeowners in North Arlington to demolish their home and build a new one on their lot, they never expected to find three streams running underneath the site.
Mr. Hodges-Fulton said the county government was notified about the change in the plan so its knows the property now has a full basement.
"Our first concern was that we might have punctured it and then oil would be leaching into the ground," Mr. Hodges-Fulton said. "We were also concerned that the bottom might have rusted through and the oil [might have] created groundwater problems. Fortunately, neither had happened, and we were able to drain and remove the tank."
