The site was located in a groundwater protection zone to a privately owned public water supply well.

The Environmental Services Provided:

SAK’s extensive investigations included soil borings, monitoring wells, and groundwater sampling to assess tanks, oil/water separators and septic systems. Remedial actions included the removal of 2 underground storage tanks, removal of an oil water separator and decommissioning of floor drains, and design, installation and operation of a chemical oxidation treatment system to treat groundwater and soil. Two treatment systems were implemented each using hydrogen peroxide.
