Since the early 1970s, Federal and State environmental chemical discharge acts and regulations have become a part of the many liabilities that owners, operators, and tenants (Responsible Parties (RPs) have had to build into their management process.
Atlantic Environmental Solutions, Inc. (AESI) provides soil and groundwater remediation services at affordable costs that relieve the RPs of these liabilities. AESI can tailor your remediation program based on specific site conditions, financial objectives, and risk tolerance.
Soil remedies can include traditional excavation and disposal programs which are suited toward shallow contamination areas or areas that afford access to the contaminated soils by conventional excavation, loading, transportation and disposal. Many soil remediation programs, small and large scale, typically will select traditional soil excavation in order to expedite soil remediation and enjoy its permanency.
GROUNDWATER PUMP AND TREAT
Although rarely used today as an entire remediation method, groundwater pump and treat methods are available more for hydraulic control at sites where the goal is to prevent contaminates from entering a nearby water body.
When appropriate, chemical injection programs can be designed and executed at sites with specific subsurface conditions and contaminates. Oxidizers such as hydrogen peroxide, potassium permanganate, or ozone can be pilot tested and ultimately selected as the injection media in order to expedite the in-situ chemical breakdown of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contamination.
HISTORICAL FILL RESTRICTIONS AND CONTROLS
Finally, when conditions are appropriate, AESI can advocate to leave certain contamination in place through the use of a restriction or Deed Notice, depending on particular State and local requirements. This is a common method to avoid excavating certain historical fill materials at properties where fill materials were used to raise the elevation to allow for development and use. This type of “remedy” can preclude the wholesale removal of large amounts of fill material, but also requires restrictions, engineering controls (i.e. Caps and Fences) and inspections, for the duration of the program.
