​Provided engineering design and program management services for approximately 26 retail service station facilities. The activities included assessment and retrofit of multi‐phase extraction, soil vapor extraction, and air sparging systems to optimize performance and achieve clean‐up objectives. New MPE systems were also designed and installed at several facilities where previous remediation efforts had failed to meet clean‐up objectives. The system designs included remote telemetry controls with static IP address or wireless communication as well as the use of sequestering agents to control iron fouling.


Construction activities for this multi‐story building and parking deck encountered incinerator ash which had been disposed on the property over 50 years ago. A rapid site investigation plan was developed and implemented to identify the extent of the ash materials and perform waste characterization determinations. The project required several mobilizations as new pockets of ash were discovered. The materials were fully delineated, characterized and removed from the site without causing any delays to the project.


Construction activities encountered two abandoned, unregistered USTs. A rapid site investigation plan was implemented and meetings were held with Georgia Environmental Protection Department (GEPD) representatives to develop an acceptable in‐place closure plan. The CAP was accepted and GEPD quickly issued “no further action” status so that construction activities could proceed without delay.



Storm water regulation changes required preparation of an updated storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) for this 900‐acre facility. The SWPPP included evaluation of numerous structures, storage yards, and manufacturing processes and development of appropriate best management practices. This SWPPP included development of a Geographic Information System database and storm drain stenciling of 888 storm water inlet structures across the property.


Operations in this 110,000 sq. ft. mixed‐use light industrial and office facility resulted in a variety of indoor air quality (IAQ) complaints from employees. An IAQ investigation including source identification and HVAC evaluation was completed to identify the primary irritants in the building. Recommendations were proposed for remediation of particulate, microbial and VOC contamination.


Due diligence investigation activities for a new office development identified petroleum and heavy metals contamination due to activities at a nearby automobile service facility. A prospective purchaser corrective action plan was prepared for the GEPD Brownfield program. Soil remediation activities were completed and a final compliance status report was submitted. The project included significant coordination with the client and attorneys for compensation due to third‐party damages.


A transfer pipe failure resulted in a release of methanol at this active resins manufacturing facility. The release impacted soil and groundwater with methanol resulting in concentrations as high as 600,000 mg/L. Bench scale pilot testing of an enhanced natural attenuation remediation approach was completed. The testing indicated that large volumes of methane were being generated through the degradation of methanol in the subsurface.  A temporary vapor recovery system was designed and installed to mitigate methane concentrations at the plant.
