Site Remediation

Site remediation has evolved significantly over the past 20 years of environmental action, and Applied Technology, Inc. has kept pace. Our staff successfully utilizes the latest technologies that provide cost-effective, non-obtrusive and streamlined solutions for site restoration. We provide a full range of technologies and supporting activities necessary for remediation projects. Applied Technology, Inc. has provided remedial services such as: feasibility studies & remedial investigations, long-term operation and maintenance support and progress monitoring.

Remedial Support Services

Applied Technology, Inc. has been asked to conduct investigations, remedial action, long term monitoring, and long term operation associated with environmental restoration activities under CERCLA, RCRA, and state voluntary remediation programs. Operation and maintenance (O&M) activities have included short and long term O&M of various types of hazardous waste facilities including, but not limited to, groundwater/surface water treatment facilities, operating a filter press, soil vapor extraction, dual phase vapor extraction, bioreactive treatment systems, low temperature thermal desorption systems and soil stabilization projects. These services have also included the preparation of manuals, personnel training, and progress monitoring.

Applied Technology, Inc. has also conducted numerous site characterization projects, including feasibility studies (FS) & remedial investigations (RI). Applied Technology, Inc. also conducts RCRA unit characterizations and develops work plans for closure of Hazardous Waste and Solid Waste Management Units (HWMU & SWMU).

Site Remediation & Restoration

Applied Technology, Inc. has conducted remedial projects in a variety of settings, including a variety of soils, fluvial sediments, waste sludges, liquids, water, construction and other debris, contaminated structures, and removal of various waste containers. These services have included performance of CERCLA removal actions, RCRA Interim Measures, RCRA closures, and Brownfields redevelopment support. Applied Technology, Inc. has participated in remediation services using standard protocols, and has also been involved in developing innovative systems and technologies for removing contaminants in the environment. We always keep abreast of new technologies so our clients can meet their remediation goals.

Applied Technology, Inc. has employed remedial actions that include, but are not limited to: slurry wall construction, asbestos abatement, subsurface reactive barriers, landfill closure, soil/sludge stabilization/solidification, water/ groundwater treatment, soil vapor extraction, excavation, waste segregation, underground storage tank removal/closure, bioremediation, thermal treatment and oxidation, phytoremediation, chemical destruction, demolition, and debris removal.

Project Experience:

Contracted by a former service station and bulk fuel supplier to remediate a LUST site. The project consisted of extensive site investigations that covered three separate properties, and then we designed and installed an air sparging/natural attenuation remediation system for a site contaminated with diesel fuel and gasoline. Regular monitoring of geochemical parameters and system adjustments allowed the system to remediate the ground water to below the guidance levels seven months ahead of the client’s needs.

Contracted by a state agency under emergency action to conduct site managed characterization and remediation of a UST site that was causing the buildup of flammable vapors in nearby residences. Geoprobe investigations began within 6 hours of our notification to proceed, and the installation of a soil vapor extraction system (SVE) to mitigate vapors occurred within 24 hours of the initial response. The project involved the installation of more than 30 groundwater and soil gas monitoring wells to identify the source beneath the residential area.

Designed a subsurface investigation and remediation chlorinated vapors entering basements of commercial businesses. Investigation resulted in discovering a new cave system that ran under the area connecting a drycleaner with the basements of the other businesses, one of them a large daycare. Designed and implemented SVE abatement measures so the businesses could reopen within 18 hours. Conducted air monitoring in the affected businesses and recommended the closure and soil removal in the affected area as well as the removal of the AST at the drycleaner, with the consultant for the drycleaner and city officials. Designed a remedial plan for flushing the cave system and collecting the contaminated water at a nearby spring. Responsible for conducting the dye trace to confirm the origin of the contaminant and the direction of contaminant migration.

Contracted to conduct site characterization and hydrogeologic evaluation for a multi-property high-priority LUST site containing a complex aquifer system controlled by a paleosol aquiclude. Responsible for design and installation of a remediation system to remove more than 1,000 gallons of gasoline product beneath a neighboring commercial business.
