Horizontal ISCR Injections: Pipe Dream or Innovative Remediation?

Groundwater contamination associated with dry cleaners/chlorinated dry cleaning solvents often needs remediation. Vertical in-situ chemical reduction (ISCR) injections are a common approach for this remediation. But what about situations where access may be limited for vertical injections or horizontal injections may be a better overall approach? This webinar will discuss [...]

Remediation Technologies to Address Chlorinated Solvent Contamination

Chlorinated solvents like tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) are man-made chemicals typically used in industrial applications, such as metal de-greasing or dry cleaning. When introduced to the environment through historical or current activities (e.g., waste management practices, manufacturing processes, spills, etc.), chlorinated solvents can lead to persistent contamination of soil [...]

Caught Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Addressing Chlorinated Solvents In Bedrock

August Mack has worked closely with a manufacturing client in northern Ohio to address chlorinated solvent contamination associated with previous operations at the facility. Those impacts extend from the surface through two thin water-bearing zones in the surficial clay deposits into the bedrock, including multiple fracture zones. Although we have [...]

Tungsten: Is It The Next Major Emerging Contaminant?

Tungsten (represented on the periodic table as “W”) is a naturally occurring element that exists in the environment as minerals with the two most common minerals being Wolframite and Scheelite. Due to tungsten's unique properties, such as its remarkable tensile strength, conductivity, and melting point, it can be found in [...]

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments: Key Considerations and Practical Insights into Recognized Environmental Conditions

There are several factors that should be taken into consideration when evaluating recognized environmental conditions (RECs) during a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). RECs are found on industrial and commercial properties for a variety of causes. This webinar will dive into what is evaluated to determine RECs, their potential [...]

Understanding Soil Management Plans

Cleaning up contaminated properties can take a long time and be a great expense. In most cases, conducting a completely “clean” cleanup is not always feasible and can be cost-prohibitive. As a result, risk-based closures are becoming more common, which means residual contamination remains behind and environmental restrictions are applied [...]

Remediation Meets Sustainability – Looking Towards Brownfields Re-Use

Remediation of soil and groundwater, and more generally, re-use of Brownfields, has come a long way over the last 40 years since the introduction of the various State and Federal cleanup programs. Cleanups have gone from excavating soil and pumping & treating groundwater, to advanced in-situ chemical, biological, and mechanical/electrical [...]
