Global Retailer Enters Into Elective Site Cleanup Agreement and Achieves NFA
This case study reviews the site of a global retailer based in Arkansas, where historic offsite dry cleaning operations caused tetrachloroethylene (PCE) contamination in the groundwater. A previous bioremediation attempt successfully remediated a majority of the site but one persistent well remained. After time passed with little change to the B-45 well, ESGI sought out a bioremediation strategy that would work quickly with long term success. ESGI partnered with REGENESIS to design a bioremediation plan that would apply PlumeStop®, Liquid activated Carbon, Hyrdogren Release Compound® (HRC) and Bio-Dechlor Inoculum® (BDI Plus) to eliminate the remaining contaminants of concern (COCs). After the applications of PlumeStop, HRC, and BDI Plus, all COCs were below the acceptable threshold levels, and as a result the site achieved No Further Action (NFA) in January of 2020.
Case study highlights:
- PlumeStop, HRC, and BDI Plus successfully remediated persistent PCE, VC, and Cis-1,2-DCE contamination.
- Environmental services firm ESGI and REGENESIS adapted the injection design according to the difficult site geology and weather conditions.
- After one round of injections, successful results led to the site achieving NFA.
