Mitigating Risks from Offsite Contamination

CHALLENGE

Developing historically industrial properties into residential properties can often be lucrative but does not come without complex environmental challenges related to site investigation, environmental cleanup, and human health exposure considerations.

APPROACH

After being retained to conduct a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of a commercial warehouse we discovered chlorinated solvent vapors. The vapors were being generated by a chlorinated solvent plume that had migrated onto the site from a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) facility located directly upgradient. We designed and installed a vapor mitigation system beneath the existing site building as a way to expedite the sale of the property.

RESULT

The latest round of indoor air sampling indicates that no chlorinated solvent vapor concentrations exist inside the site building. And, because our client was so satisfied with the solution and results provided, they subsequently asked our team to review a decade’s worth of data regarding the RCRA facility to determine whether they should pursue the RCRA facility for damages.
