BTEX, MTBE, TBA and TPHg Remediation

Former Retail Gas Station in California 





The origin of the contamination problem was from hydrocarbon fuel releases that occurred at a former service station located on the northeast quadrant of the intersection. The service station had been demolished, and some contaminated soil excavation completed. However, high concentrations of contaminants located in monitoring wells indicated that sources still remained in the initial release area. Additionally, similar high concentrations of contaminants in monitoring wells located southeast of the intersection indicated that contaminants were probably transported by the groundwater (flowing in a southerly direction). It was also concluded that the contaminant plume extended from these southerly monitoring points back north, under the road, to the initial source (the former service station). The goal was to treat around the highest contaminated well (MW-7) on the southeast corner of the intersection.
