El Portal gas station will reopen

The El Portal Gas station is on schedule to reopen during the first part of July, according to the National Park Service.

Last fall, the underground tanks, necks, and valves were tested and the NPS found a stress failure in the system. No leaks or contamination was found, however the NPS elected to replace the tanks and dispensers before the gas station could be safely reopened.

Further, improvements and repairs to the facility, including an wheelchair accessible restroom, needed to be completed.

Park Service officials look forward to continuation of basic gas services in El Portal in early July.
