Significant chlorinated solvent groundwater contamination (PCE up to 30,000 μg/L) were discovered following the completion of the redevelopment of a former laundry site into a residential housing development.
An in situ remedial method was the only viable option to treat the contamination present beneath the buildings.
Application works were undertaken using a portable Direct-Push injection rig. In total, 19,000 kg of 3-D Micoemulsion was applied to 15 No. injection points. Remedial works were completed within one week.
