The problem was that a lined disposal pond had a damaged liner. Process water was exiting the liner and contaminating soils and groundwater. WWC guided the client through the process of regulatory compliance for environmental reporting and cleanup. WWC and the client chose to excavate contaminated soils to the maximum possible extent. Excavated soils were hauled to a nearby disposal facility. WWC directed excavation to minimize excavation of soils clean enough to remain in place. The result was that the regulatory agency required the installation of groundwater monitor wells to sample water and measure contaminant levels. Ongoing monitoring has shown that by removing the highly contaminated soils, groundwater contamination is below cleanup levels, indicating that further remediation will likely not be necessary.
