Commercial Nursery Cleanup

Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) conducted a Phase I ESA at a commercial nursery and identified stained soils and the former presence of two underground storage tanks (USTs) on the Site.  To address these recognized environmental conditions, LEI completed an extensive Phase II Investigation to assess the condition of the soils and groundwater.  Significant gasoline-related soil and groundwater contamination was identified in the vicinity of the former USTs.  Corrective action activities to remediate the contamination involved excavation and disposal of nearly 350 tons of impacted soil; the design, construction, and operation of an air sparge/soil vapor extraction system; and the recovery of approximately 5,000 gallons of free product.
