Advanced Remedial Technologies Restore Neighborhood
Former Michigan Industrial Site Treated Using Combined Remedy Approach
This case study reviews a former plating facility in southwest Michigan that had released chlorinated volatile organic compounds (cVOCs) into shallow groundwater, resulting in a ¼-mile long contaminant plume. In response, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and the environmental firm, DLZ, implemented a combined remedy which included mitigating vapor intrusion in the residential basements and treating the groundwater plume with a novel, multi-phase in situ bioremediation approach.
- Application of combined REGENESIS technologies to biodegrade contaminants, prevent further plume migration, and protect occupants from the threat of vapor intrusion.
- Reduction of the total cVOC plume extent by 95% and reduced mass by 99.8%.
- Positive results indicating the degradation process is ongoing and processing.
