An in situ chemical oxidation treatment using Klozur® CR was completed to reduce contaminants caused by a petroleum release at a marina in the Savannah, Georgia area.
The location of the site required site treatment at or near In-Stream Water Quality Standards (ISWQS). Klozur® CR was selected to treat the impacted groundwater in order to meet the stringent goals. Prior to injection, BTEX was detected in excess of 44,000 μg/L, with benzene detected as high as 3,280 μg/L.
Post injection results showed significant reduction in dissolved benzene/total BTEX. A No Further Action was received from the Georgia EPD in November 2010, with site closure achieved after only one injection.
