An underground fuel storage tank was removed from in front of the Dips & Dogs restaurant, at 50 S. Garfield Ave. Wednesday morning.
The tank had been there from the time the property held a gas station.
Hinsdale Village Manager David Cook said the law requires underground storage tanks be removed within a certain period after they become obsolete. Except for occasionally holding up traffic, the removal went smoothly with the tank being hauled away and the hole refilled in front of the restaurant, authorities said.~.
