SITUATIONAL SUMMARY

Site characterization investigations revealed extensive liquid phase hydrocarbon (LPH) impact and wide spread dissolved phase total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) impact of soils and groundwater. Chemical injections were implemented utilizing a combination of Klozur® persulfate oxidant, hydrogen peroxide, and proprietary catalyst solution

RESULTS

Results demonstrated 88% to 99% concentration reduction of total BTEX. After 100 days, analytical results demonstrated consistency with previous concentration reduction levels of total BTEX.
