of Soil at Construction Site
A construction facility
contained above ground diesel tanks and waste oil drums.
Over the years, the tanks
and drums leaked resulting in soil contamination.
Approximately 500 cubic yards of soil was stockpiled in preparation for
bioremediation. A biotreatability
study was conducted to evaluate if the contaminated soil would support the
biological processes necessary to degrade petroleum hydrocarbons.
The results verified the
potential for successful bioremediation. Fieldwork
is pending to degrade the diesel and oil contaminated soil to acceptable
