The historical release of volatile organic compounds at a solvent storage area prompted a hypothetical risk evaluation of indoor air quality and recovery of ground water plume. Soil gas sampling was performed to detect the presence of volatile organic chemicals. Ground water recovery, microbial treatment technology treatment implemented to attain risk based remediation criteria.
Breaches in the waste discharge lines between the manufacturing facility and the wastewater treatment plant caused pharmaceutical wastes to be released into a porous limestone aquifer. Microbial degradation of the wastes created complex contaminants and noxious gases that affected plant operations and adjacent communities. A series of soil gas interception wells was integrated with a groundwater capture network to intercept contaminants, treat them onsite and return the air and water quality to near pristine condition.
