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 [...]

Unlocking Opportunities: Funding Strategies for Brownfield Redevelopment Under Act 2 in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's Land Recycling Program, Act 2, serves as a beacon of hope in the state's endeavor to revitalize blighted and contaminated properties, commonly known as brownfields. This legislative framework offers a streamlined pathway for the cleanup and redevelopment of these sites, aiming to transform them into valuable assets for communities [...]

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 [...]

Remediation Case Study – Electric Resistance Heating (ERH)

Environmental remediation approaches can vary widely for different projects.  Based on several factors (potential contaminants, exposure pathways, lithology at the Site, neighboring properties, project stakeholder risk tolerances, timing goals, etc.), there are numerous remediation alternatives to explore.  Does the Site require active remediation such as excavation and off-Site disposal or [...]

The Benefits of Pilot Studies for Remedial Injections

When completing remediation projects for contaminated sites, there are many factors that come into play. The type of contaminants and the corresponding concentrations, site characteristics, implementation feasibility, timeframe, overall goal of remediation, and cost all contribute to design of a remedy. Site-specific characteristics that are also taken into consideration include [...]

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 [...]

Environmental Considerations with Land Use Redevelopment

The range of land use in the United States is extensive, varying from agricultural land use to heavy industrial use. Not only do environmental considerations arise when redeveloping a Brownfields site, they must also be taken into account in nearly all redevelopment scenarios whether it is agricultural to residential or [...]
